    o_O Hi - I just used the Kaspersky online virus scanner. The results were 2 found virus's (Nimda) ~ I then downloaded 2 dif removal tools & neither found any Nimda on the PC. I also downloaded the Kaspersky trial vsn - and it found nothing! So - what's the verdict? Many thanks, Deca

    Also, check the scanning options used, like to scan all files and scanning inside archives and compressed files. These may need to be enabled for these other scanners to detect the infected file.
