Wow... pretty drastic, but I don't suppose you want to
reformat and reload from clean media :(

I use PestPatrol and Norton Internet Security and found
that PP found and killed that Bonsai pest. My son bugs me
all the time about "free music" and Kazaa, and blames my
job for his not being able to do it!

I'm a CSO for a large gov't agency... good luck!
