For months I have felt that there was a hack program in my win me sys. Today as I was ck reg for any anomolies I came across Starcraft 1.03 under applications. When I looked it up I was directed to a hacker site. It was mentioned as a top hacking program. I did not download this.
Well, I probably did but not voluntarily.
Help me remove this and all its accoutrements. Please

Try a program like Ad-Aware or McAfee virus scanner.

To remove use this program: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
Also run Ad-Aware frequently, as well as AV software like McAfee. Do not use Kazaa or the other Napster type's of p2p software.
To fully remove the virus off of winME you have to disable "System Restore" http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/SystemHelpDocs/DisableSysRestore.htm

Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected the last 4 years.
