Be advised that I got hit by the sysFADER virus this morning. Bad enough, but worse when I have a fully functional Norton Virus software in place and running!

I just threw it away and loaded the AVG free which I am told is much better and am trying to see how bad I was hurt.

If this saves one of you the headache, I will.

Ahhhh so glad I run linux! Sorry to hear about the virus, but AVG free isn't much better than what you had.

I run Avast and Spybot. They work together and my computer runs much more trouble free than it ever did with McAffee or Norton. I pay for the Avast and Spybot is free.

Also download Malwarebtyes from Malwarebytes.org and run it once a week. There some of the newer antivirus malware programs (very nasty) that cannot be erradicated by anything but Malwarebytes. Its free. It's saved my butt several times.
