    Ugh... I have been infected with a virus called Win32/Parite.... I did a google search on it, and it says it infects other applications.. which is what it did... anyone know how it came or how to get rid of it?

    use a good antivirus program and get rid of all the virus infected files first, then u can try zonealarm or sygate firewall.

    Scan with a web based virus scanner to kill off all reminants of the bugger, reboot using a floppy, format from the floppy, shutdown for thirty seconds, reload windows.
    Why females insist on putting the lid down is beyond me.

    I don't have it anymore. I reinstalled Windows (had to use my home edition disk, and delete the partition) ... but now my computer is so screwed up, it will crash whenever I am running any bittorrent client, not only that, my internet will disconnect for some reason after. But when I am running bittorrent, my mouse will stop moving, and my keyboard also does not work.
