Why won't Norton Antivirus get rid of Windows Messenger? It's infected my entire computer worse than any virus ever has. Spyware is nothing but viruses too. I've seen it bring computers to a hault.

Ok. I do know how to get rid of it. It is just EXTREMELY annoying. It keeps showing up from nowhere.

no clue if this is similar, but i know that when i delete programs, and they are the kinds that have backups coming out of their backups, i try to do a complete search of all my files for any remote reference title, orphan file, alias, etc, of this program and delete it it all. i use to have a program specifically for this. it itemized the complete disk and returned every file, alias, etc related to that program. i think it was a third party extensions manager, bought don't recall for sure. take care, hope you are able to get rid of the bug up your hard drive \:\)

journey well,
