Technical, thank you!
I went to MoveOnBoot but there is nothing called that and I don't know which one to use ???...sorry...but, gosh, some of them look good - of course not nearly as good as Avast! :)
Which one are you recommending, please?

MoveOnBoot is not an antivirus application.
MoveOnBoot allows you to copy, move or delete files on the next system boot. This comes in very handy, if you need to replace or delete files which are locked by other applications, loaded into memory or cannot be changed until next system boot. You could manually enter a line to the wininit files, but using MoveOnBoot is much simpler, since the program can be integrated into shell - it creates the "Copy/Move/Delete on boot" context menu item.

Sorry for the broken link. Maybe this one: http://www.webattack.com/get/moveonboot.html

Thank you again...you have done so much to help me, I would like to think of a way to send you a present for you or your family...

Just use the [applaud] button on the left of your screen  ;D

thank you!

I'll install it now...
can I also use Sygate Personal Firewall with Avast! ???
the only firewall that I have now is the WinXP

sorry I have so many questions!

what does the applaud button do? does it give you some kind of recognition? I hope so, Technical...you  deserve it!

Mac, hello!

my next computer is going to be a Mac...I can not stand this Dell from Hell!

I had problems trying to install the Sygate...so I amy look at the Black Ice...or something else.

thanks for your reply!

this puppy is going to bed and try and get computers off my mind for awhile :)  I've been working on this for several hours!
I think I will have to do some more cleaning up on this computer and get rid of that virus--tomorrow! ;D

peace, CoJo

Of course you can use SPF (it still works togheter with ZA, but I do not recommend two 'external' firewall + Windows XP 'internal' firewall).

You can see links for Firewall & System tests at my favorite links here  ;)
