looks like you saved your hard drive, but get an antivirus pronto!

Sounds like a fake virus to me. A fake virus makes you think something bad is happening, but it's really nothing. Doesn't really matter, you SHOULD go get a virus scanner. Just last week I made a house call to my mechanic, who was having computer trouble, didn't have a virus scanner, and it turned out he had 55 infected files.

I recommend Norton Antivirus. McAfee is rubbish IMHO.

Skywalker, did you know that Australians are originally from the UK? Some of the Australian English words that sound funny to North Americans are actually from the Queen's English.

I've heard of vegemite. Australians put it on their sandwich. It's available in North America in some areas. There's a song about vegemite, but I can't find it right now.

It's several vegetables mixed together as a sort of paste, making it spreadable.

I used to have a couple of Austrailian neighbors. They never heard of peanut butter. For the, PB&J was Vegimite and Jelly. Nasty stuff. It's black and tastes horrible.

Hehehe, just wondering if any of you have had a run-in with it. Grin
