i guess ill call if nno ohter suggestions are thought up. lol.. Thanx . ill be checking in to see if anything new has shown up.
Dont know if you want to try this but it is something I would try. Go in and do a system restore to a point prior to installing bearshare. may or may not work but it may be worth a try
start/programs/accessories/systemtools/system restore (win xp)
another possibility, try removing the VISS and installing the free version of AVG and do a scan with it. see if another AV program might spot it. Probably not as most AV programs use the same definitions but it may be worth a try.
I am with CharlesH regarding priracy. You stand a good chance of being prosecuted and paying mega bucks. It's not worth it. Not to mention the problems you have found for yourself. Try SpyBot Search and Destroy from Safer-Networking. If your machine is really hosed, you may need to run it from safe mode.
