I'd really love to meet the person that wrote that fake anti-virus junk, what a thorn in my side he/she/they have been!
I would too. I'm not so sure they'd like meeting me though.

Thanks for the links, Gary. I have 3 machines, 2 desktops, and 1 laptop all on Vista now. Thanks Penny too. That fake antivirus junk popped up on 2 of my machines a few weeks ago. I had to go to safe mode to even do a system restore on one of them. I don't know how to fix the registry manually. It even disabled the real antivurus program I have.

The Windows Vista update recently is what I think messed up the network connection settings. All of these machines have Vista that came with them, so I have no way (that I know of) to go back to XP, and I can't afford 7 at the present, as it is cruise deposit time. I guess my budget priorities are a little weird.
