My antivirus software tells me I have a winshow virus as well as a javabyte
virus which I cannot repair. This changes my homepage and floods me with
adult sites. Does anyone know what I can do to fix it? I tried downloading a
patch from microsoft but on rebooting I got an error message stating the
download nad not taken effect. Is my computer truly broken? Somebody please
help

Thank you, I thought I'd just replied to this but I must have clicked on new
posting instead. Could you respond to my new posting "Thanks but". Sorry
