    first ill preface by saying i know im dumb for not updating virus defs. :ninja:

    anyway, ive got the free grisoft avg antivirus program and i hadnt updated it in maybe 2 months. so, this morning i decide to finally do it and after scanning it turns out im infected with the following
    psw.briss.g
    psw.briss.e

    anyway, the program does its thing and says its removed them and im clean. then i go to the grisoft site and says for those running windows 98 (yeah, im behind the times ;) ) that you should run the scan in ms dos mode and then do the removal. so, i scan again in dos mode just in case and i come up clean.

    so, am i kosher now, or is there something else i should do. as you can tell by this post i dont know what im doing so i hope i dont have to do anything else :D

    thanks!
