Here's something else I found handy that I'm adding to the list.
Trojan Killer 1.3
Download Trojan Killer 1.3.3.1 - A malicious computer software (malware) removal tool. - Softpedia

I was infected by Win32: Trojan-gen,something questions are being asked about all over the intenet and not many seem to know how to get rid of.
I used Avast,which spotted it but couldn't get rid of it,same for AVG,also Malwarebytes Anti Malware couldn't get rid of it.
It affected Internet Explorer giving anoying pop up advertising every couple of mins.
It did not affect Firefox however so I used firefox till I found a way to kill the Trojan.
2 days later I discovered Trojan Killer 1.4 which done the job.

Don't need it,the transformation pack and Vista start menu transforms your XP giving it an artificial Vista look. :bigsmile:

[QUOTE="nanny mags, post: 2388242]is it this one hun and what does it do ,dumb blonde here lol[/quote]

Yep,I'm using this one
VistaMizer Download - Softpedia

and this one

Vista Start Menu – Convenient alternative to Start menu

The first one gives your XP a Vista look,you get the Vista music,screensaver,desktop and appearence.

The second one converts your XP Start Menu to a Vista start menu.

The two together gives the XP computer a really cool new look.

Ubuntu is a good version for linux.the people at Canonical have been doing everything possible to keep it up to date,and avoid some of the pitfalls that some other flavors of Linux have{Wi-Fi being most prevalent amongst them}.....make sure you give Gimp a good working over once you get it. It works just like PSP,and you can use the tubes/frames/brushes/etc.. you have with psp there too....I'm using Fedora 8{but am fixing up a 'buntu box} and GIMP for my tags... [/COLOR]
