Hi, I have been working on this for about 6 hours now and was wondering if you could help.  My Symantec Auto-Protect picked up a viruts earlier today and now I am having all sorts of problems.  I have searched some of these down and deleted them but everytime I restart my computer it alerts me that I have that same virus.  Then it asks me to get some spyware called Safe-Gaurd or a bunch of others.  All that seems to do is pop up another auto-protect from symantec on that program I just downloaded to get rid of the old virus.  I don't know where to start, I think that Spybot could fix it but I don't know if Symantec will pick it up.  Please help.

    Try Ewido from:

    and see if that will remove this problem.

    In addition, I also suggest getting HijackThis from:

    and run it. It produces a log which you can copy and paste back to that same site. Then click on the "Analyze" link at the bottom. Next, click on the "save analysis" link at the bottom, and post the address of the saved analyzed page here.
