    when running windows live safety centre the scan finds 2 viruses but doesn't
    detect them. At the end of the scan the search says that there were no
    viruses found! Do I have viruses or not? Please can someone explain this to
    me?

    I suggest using an AV scanner forom a well known and "trusted" AV vendor.

    The following tool provides AV scanners from; Kaspersky, Trend Micro, sophos and Mcafee.


    Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
    http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

    To use this utility, perform the following...
    Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
    Choose; Unzip
    Choose; Close

    Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
    { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

    NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
    FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

    C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
    This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode.
    This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
    The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the PC.

    You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
    download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
    needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
    during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
    Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

    When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
    file. http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

    When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more
    comprehensive PDF help
    That text has "The package includes two additional DOS BAT files;
    C:\AV-CLS\DOSCLEAN.BAT, C:\AV-CLS\KAVCLEAN.BAT and C:\AV-CLS\SOFCLEAN.BAT"

    I make that "three" not "two".
