    Vista - rootkit removal software

    I run Vista on my laptop and XP on my desktop. My wife's employer claims we have a rootkit virus that is attacking their firewall. They traced it back to my IP address. Any good software to remove it? I've run PC tools .com antivirus, trend micro virus, and spybot and was not able to come up with anything. Help!

    If you can not figure it out I have had a couple friends use this site to help them out. If the person that gets assigned to you helps you out you can pay them a few bucks.

    AVG AVG Free - Download antivirus and antispyware software for Windows XP and Vista Try it, you'll love it. I have used the free version for 7 years and have never found an evil that it will not extract from my computer.
