    Question Internet access freezes system

    I'm sure some of you have seen the popup on the web stating it found viruses on your hard drive click yes to scan. I'm also sure like me you never fell for it. Well My Wife did! now whenever I try and access the web browser my system hangs. I did a scan but nothing was found I have uninstalled IE8 Installed Foxfire (which at the end of install when it tries to startup freezes). I was able to access the IE8 from the ZA icon in tray but kept getting the send error to Micros every 5 sec. I ran PC Tuneup on the reg and cleaned and defraged all to no avail. It does not affect my email access. Anyone with a fix? Any idea when the on demand scan didn't catch it?
    I just put in a new hard drive 3 wks ago and don't want to wipe and reinstall.
    I am using XPSP3 fully updated and had just updated virus

    If you have ZA Extreme I would recommend that you turn ON Virtualization. If you have then your perfectly protected.
