Oki, So this morning I woke up this morning and got on msn messenger. There was a website going around and diff people were sayin you know this site is cool and stuff. So as usual, curious and stupid, I went and checked it out. It looked like some broken link and the text was in a diff language so I just went on with my work and thought nothing of it. I was later asked if I had gotten the link or had visited it and then was informed that it had given me a virus.... I reformated my drive a week back and didnt install my antivirus because my friend had the cd and I only got it back yesterday. I totaly forgot to install it. My computer is now running slower, and it has a few foreign and unfriendly process running. I installed antivirus and updated it right away and then ran a full system scan in safe mode. Norton came up with nothing *Norton systemworks 2005 premier*. I will go and get the process names right now and post them here. Anyone have any idea at all what this might be? I really dont want to have to reinstall again. I really apprciate any help or posts posted. Thanks

Edit: Oki then.... lol Now the process isnt there..... *is totally lost* Maybe it was just a false alarm. Im going to murder the person who told me it was a virus if it was....
If I see the process again, I will post it here. Sorry about the false alarm:S

if you google for the program you can download the setup file without needing a legal version of windows. not suggesting that you would, just in case maybe microsoft.com was down or something
