| Thanks, Dave;
| I went to housecall, and performed a scan. I need to use

| BKDR DAEMONIZ.A
| JAVA BYTVERIFY.A
| (TIMES 3)
| YATA (TIMES 3)
| BKDR ITERATOR.A (TIMES 2)
| I was able to delete all of them except BKDR ITERATOR.A.
| It won't let me delete it because it says that "windows is
| using this program". Do I have to run DOS by itself to
| get rid of it, or do I need to(yikes!) re-install my
| windows? Any suggestions?
