I'm sorry to hear about the problems you've had. In the past I've had
problems, when I was using McAfee. I would like to mention that I use
eTrust EZ Antivirus since that time, my system has detected any viruses and
deleted them. (Knock on wood!) It's only $9.00/year and you can download
off the internet.
