    AVG 6.0 has found SECThought.F on my computer. I have seen the postings about eliminating Secthought from the restore directories and will follow up on them.

    The main problem I have at the moment is the bizarre behaviour preventing me from logging on. In about 9 reboots out of 10 Windows fails to initialize correctly, either hanging while starting or showing the login screen but not allowing me to activate any of the logins. This does not sound like SecThought but is it some other virus? I have been running AVG 6.0, which is how I found SecThought. Funnily enough this restart problem only became evident after installing AVG.....

    In the 1 out of 10 occasions when I can get in, everything works fine until I shut down or reboot.
