Im sorry EzRiIgK but what does updates have to do with file extensions? It is one of two things.
I assumed, (obviously, i be the ass this time!! Ha) that 'swicthed to window media center' meant an install to windows, which i thought could be removed this way.
Was unaware of the virus, much thanks to Brett!
lol no problem I didn't mean to sound like you didn't know what you were talking about. I was actually seriously asking in-case there was some sort of update or something that I didn't know about that affected the issue. I should have worded it better.
(when it comes to virus's Brett has pretty much seen them all!)
no prob. too nothing from it. think the original question, worded better would have given us, except Brett (i looked up his link, which would do the trick if it is a virus) a better idea of what was being asked. anyway did some lookin and found these instructions (on eHow) on running a scan. Maybe they will also help the original poster.
