hey i'm soo sorry for my absence!! see i made a big mistake... since csrss.exe wasn't in my startup folder i found the same file on my windows\system32 folder, so i deleted it.. then windows wouldn't start so i had to get it fixed.. well i reinstalled my windows, but i still can't visit web pages that involve virus scanners, so i'm guessing a fragment of the virus is still here.. help!! :tazz: :)

Navigate to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

In there should be a file named HOSTS it shouldnt have an extension.
Right click this file and open it with notepad.

Please let me know the contents of this file.
