I think I have it. every time my computer starts up my zonealarm firewall tells me Windows Genuine Advantage is trying to access the internet. I always deny its request - is this negating the effects? - no one can access my computer.
Also - will a virus scan rid me of this - or do I need to get a specialist trojan hunter program?

You probably have recently agreed on MS Wins Auto update. Part of the update includes that call thus the message.
Actually I am looking to disable that warning but yet to find how.
My AV PC-Cillin protect against it, go on line with PCC I think you may perform an onlime scan.
type regedit enter
and test for all the virus names.
Please DO NOT DEL ANYTHING FROM THE REG UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO.
go on line and check for instructions on removal
