hanks VoG, but when I try and open it, the virus shuts it down! Is there anyway of installing the fix without having to goto that site?

In need of desperate help!

Thank you for your time!!

If you are using Windows 2000 or XP use Windows Explorer to go to

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Or in other versions of Windows C:\windows

and rename the file called "HOSTS" to "HOSTS.OLD" (or delete it altogether).

Restart and try the removal tool again.

It's sorted, I got my dad to download it on his PC, put it on a removable disc and ran it on my pc.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!

Much appreciated.
