Re: Virus Scanner

well im in the process of running this one
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
and i must say GOD DAMN!!!!!! ive already found 57 TROJAN KREEPER.Q virus' and 1 TROJAN NEXT.B which has the potential to kill my pc completely and send files to third parties i thought my pc was already clean. my advice is that everyone check their PC to see what they really have.
what i have isnt that bad in the scheme of things but the fact they are there is enough for me.
