I have a question. I was advised to use this to get rid of an accessories tool bar. I did. I just went there again today. The question is: My AVG detected a virus in a temporary internet file; I'm sorry, I didn't manage to catch the name of the file, but the virus alert said it is a trojan horse downloader called Swizzor.4.C. How can I get rid of this; I just completed an AVG scan about 20 minutes ago, and this was not picked up. I would appreciate some advice. I tried to use the "heal" function, tried to delete this file, and then tried to move it to the virus vault, none of these choices worked. I would appreciate some advice, please. I think this forum is great, and have really learned some valuable tips from the posters. Thank you for letting me be a part of this. I have a Compaq Presario 1200 and use WindowsME.

According to the Symantecs page this is not listed (swizzor.4.C). You'd be better off contacting your antivirus provider to help you with this issue.
