    This is the MGA result. I still have the "Blue Star" on my task bar and the system is running slooooow. Also, when I load IE7, there is a message that wants to load "cftmon.exe" but I have blocked it with Spybot.

Next you may download Windows Defender for free. Please visit http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/defender/default.mspx and learn more as how Windows Defender will help thwart malware infestations.  Next visit the Microsoft Security Center here:  http://www.microsoft.com/security/default.mspx .  There are many links here providing customers comprehensible assistance for arming them against malicious activities which lurk abound the internet.

This is a small price to pay for safeguarding your systems.

    Next I encourage regular visits to The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) blog @ http://blogs.technet.com/msrc/default.aspx .  Microsoft provides a real-time way for communicating with customers as well as helping customers understand Microsoft's security response efforts.
