    1) Got spywared. :( :(

    2) IE will now go away in favor of firefox. F Microsoft.

    3) I have run ad aware & spybot & still seem to have something running on my PC that shouldn't - what's the next best spyware detection/removal tool?

    4) One of the damn spywares disabled task manager via admin policy, and I can't find where to turn it back on. Any suggestions? XP Pro, I have run the group policy program but can't where to change it.

    5) Did I mention F Microsoft? I MUST have a PC for work purposes, but now I hate that company more than ever.

    OK, I re-enabled task manager via group policies. They hide it real well, though. ;Q

    This always amuses me, people browse the net without any protection, get fudged with spyware THEN they change from explorer to some other stuff and start running ad aware & spybot .
    if you would run those programs once in a while and used a firewall you wouldnt even know what firefox is.

    /end rant
