Wiindows 7

Well, thanks to your folks, I've solved it all.

This virus was a real PITA. It polluted my hardware with software I'll never use, it replaced my home page in Firefox, and it set up its own toolbar in Firefox.

All clean now in FF and IE...

Thanks to you guys who helped so much..

How to change the default double click action?
I knew how to change this in XP, but I just can't work it out in 7. For an example of what I mean, in XP you could change it so that for .reg files double clicking would Edit and you had to right click to Merge. That was Microsoft's own example for a 'How to' for XP.
