Hello All:

I'm running Windows XP and I appear to have a virus that is undetectable using Windows Defender, SpyBot or Norton.  Not all my programs are affected but the ones with a slide bar for scrolling up and down behave eraticly and rapidly scroll up and down by themsleves.  Pressing the control key has some effect but making selections on a page is almost impossible.  I've noticed when my computer shuts down or starts sometimes there's a different and longer series of beeps.  I do not receive any error messages. This started around July 20, 2007.

Does anyone know the name of this virus or how to eliminate it?    Cheers,    Chato
