I'm in big poopoo...
I just came home today (well technically it was yesterday, i just didnt really sleep) and when i opened my comp i got some problems...
i dont know if they are conected to each others or not, but here they are:

1. i tried to download ACDSee from Kaza..when i opened my recieved files folder it was filled with files i dont want and didnt download, porn, games, firewalls, codes..i dont really need all that crap...everytime i deleted the files and reopened the folder, the files came back! in the end, i deleted my recieved kaza folder....so now, how can i download things again?
2.i keep getting a DOS window open without me doing anything, and then an error message saying something like "can not move file moo.something to c:/" or something like that...this seems to happen only when ICQ is shut off...
3.my computer is really slow!! and checking for errors/defragmenting takes forever if at all

Congratulations, you have a virus. Look at the file size before you download them. If they're sub-100k, chances are they're a virus. I do not remember how to clean it, but if you want to stop the DOS box, right click it and go to properties. It'll pause and leave you in peace.

I think there's some lines in sysedit.exe you need to change to fix it, unless I'm thinking of a different virus. If not, search norton.com for 'moo.txt' or find a real copy (check the file size, look for a file that's at least 20 megs) of Norton Antivirus and clean your PC.

I can help you with one thing - to download files again assign another folder for Kazaa to put files in ^_^

Hmmm...pink elephants...some hilarious joke about them anyone?

BTW yes this is spam, but I don't think I would be of much help, cause my solution would be kicking your PC and rebooting it till it works, if that fails, blame your dad :D

Try checking your task manager, wotever is taking the most RAM and CPU % end it... it accually turned out to BE Norton AntiVirus that was taking 97-99% of CPU power when my comp was slow...now its raving fast. :D
