You beat me to it Storm.

I just saw that in one of my rss feeds this morning.

Good job. I'd hate for anyone of us to lose any time playing Halo if it can be avoided.

or run something like malwarebites, does the same job, just a bit quicker

I use Eset's NOD32 on my PC. It detects most forms of malware and deletes them automatically. It also tells you when it finds something, lets you set a schedule to automatically run scans (mine runs every Wednesday at 3AM) and will warn you when a program you wish to use has a virus in it, but won't close the window, in case it is misreading it. Oh and here's a laugh: It detects Norton Antivirus as a Virus because it hangs around in the registry when you delete it.

www.eset.com

It is subscription based. $50 for a year of the full version. There is also a Free Version that has less features, and a 1 month Trial of the Full Version for free.

Also if you are looking for a good free anti virus.

Download AVG free from Cnet.com, This is a great free antivirus that works great.
I also recommend spybot search and destroy - Its great and free

Technut, I believe the post needs updating, the first link doesn't go directly to it anymore (due to Windows Live One Care being scrapped)
