    I am not sure this is everything. In looking at a list of files changed, I noticed many .log files in “c:doc and settings” indicating some kind of change to the behavior of browser. It looks like some kind of a replacement for google, bing, etc.

    It is not possible to close PC security, you can not open the task manager. you can not open regedit or CMD or MSconfig.
    I can not find the DIR where PC security is installed.
    Now busy with UBCDwinV3.5. Looks like virus can not be removed from within win xP itself.
