    I have spybot and etrust antivirus, but something has gotten into my work computer.

    i can't download anything to scan it and spybot and etrust come up empty. is there anything i can run that i don't have to download. i have a corrupt file that wont allow access to run any antivirus. we have already tried all the workarounds.

    any ideas?

    Can you download from another computer onto a flashdrive, and install another antivirus software from the flashdrive? Or hooking up the hard drive to another computer and running antivirus scan from the other harddrive?

    did that already. it follows me.

    scanned with norton, etrust antivirus, and spybot. still not 100% healthy yet, but the computer is usable.
