    Free Online Scans

    Free Online Scans : Virus, Spyware & Internet Security

    None of the anti-virus or anti-spyware utilities have a detection rate of 100%. Far from it!
    In addition to AVG Anti-Virus, SpyWare Doctor and Zone Alarm Firewall installed on my PCs, sometimes, I also use online scans.
    Here is a list of the ones I know:

    I don't find any results in google for system.sbs. Is it giving you an error saying it cant find the file at boot? Go to Start > Run > msconfig and in startup see if its listed there. Also post a hijackthis log here.

    Holy crap, stop shortening words lol Right click a video that use to use media player, select open with, choose program, and browse to find wmplayer.exe. It may have been deleted by your virus too, so if you dont find it try reinstalling mediaplayer.
