Do they by any chance have Messenger in the title bar?
Two of the anti programs I ran picked up some Explorer bugs, maybe I need something for repairing the damage? Alternate data streams, what is that? This stuff makes coal look easy.
Which programs? I'm not a pro but a quick search brought up information about Alternate Data Streams being associated with root kits which are very hard for anti virus programs to detect unless they are specifically designed to look for it, malicious code running as root kit for all intents and purposes doesn't exist to windows.
