    It is the Spy Sweeper - the same as my shields. Do you think I should
    disable the anti-virus also? I just feel like I'm asking for trouble.
    Besides, I paid a pretty penny for it. - CAT

    Did you rename the HOSTS file?

    AFAIK, no version of Spysweeper comes with an anti-virus component that
    offers real-time protection.

    Besides renaming the HOST file to OLD, when I went to a link to an MSNBC
    article this morning, THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM IS BACK!! It is following along
    with both IE6 and IE7.

    Install an anti-virus application, update its definitions, reboot into Safe
    Mode and run a full system scan.

    The Webroot Spy Sweeper I have also has an anti-virus app. that I use and I
    will update the defs. Then I will do a reboot in SAFE mode and run a scan
    this evening. I REALLY would like to go back to IE7 when all is said and
    done. - CAT

    I stand corrected. I assume you're running
    http://www.webroot.com/consumer/products/spysweeperwithantivirus/

    Required reading IMHO before installing IE7:

    Sandi's Installation Tips <= FOLLOW THESE TIPS TO THE LETTER!
    http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install

    [And I strongly recommend using
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx as the
    installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.]
