I'd be grateful for some advice. Panda Active Scan found VirtualBouncer on my computer yesterday. They offered a few different ways to pay them to take it out. As I looked around in Google, I found descriptions of the files I should have associated with it...and I don't have the "program." http://members.shaw.ca/wpf/confused/wtf.gif A couple of malfunctions began a few days before and I don't know if they're connected. They're not symptoms for VirtualBouncer, from what I read. <<One program (ePrompter) seems associated with freezing my system & needing pushbutton reboot...however, it's been reliable for years. Everyone w/ same trouble has XP Home, as I do. I've also lost function of the Search feature in my computer, but did download Agent Ransack. That seems to work just fine.>> I saw some sites offering to scan for VirtualBouncer, but wasn't going to get 2nd opinions from sites not recommended here. Then, I'd just have more trouble from whatever they left behind.
