    It's better to leave it alone Matt. No use airing something silly like what happened. I just got pissed at a certain Mod. who will go nameless. I consider the matter over and done with.

    But I'm happy to be posting again.... I'll wait a couple days then resume my Superhero status.

    God, if you can't laugh at yourself, then your not trying hard enough. ;)

    crasher,

    be advised that virus u have will change it's name almost everytime u delete one of it's files,

    some of the file names it uses is style winkera.exe, winkju.exe, etc.

    good luck :(

    yeah, noticed that it changed its name a few times!!

    Cleaned the virus out now, used the removal tool. Would just like to say thanks very much guys, your quick response allowed me to sort this out straight away. Very impressed!! Thanks again.
