I saw in one place on the net that that file was corrupt when Norton uinstalled some spyware program . . that seems to be what might have happened to me. Would it be stupid to restore the files that are quarantined in Norton from the date this all happened and try to install them in another way?

Thanks,
Jeff

It might be stupid, but if you are sure that this was Norton's doing it might be the easy way out.

Do make a list of the files you will be restoring and the location where they will be restored to.
Best to do so before you retsore them.
We may be able to filter out the worst malware.

No they did not . . . reloading the spyware didin't either. This is annoying.

Any other ideas?
