 r> Today I ran Spybot again and it found another one called
 r> "win32.downloader.com".

ummm... that's not a virus or malware... that's a domain on the internet... it
is hosted on 208.87.35.103 which is owned by Secure Hosting Ltd. out of Nassau,
NP (New Providence in the Bahamas)... what you found there was a cookie... not
a virus or malware... there is a huge difference ;)

 rg> CORRECTION:-

 rg> win32.downloader.com should have read WIN32.DOWNLOADER.GEN

that makes a difference ;)

 rg> Sorry

not a problem... just tossed remote diagnosis in a spin for a few minutes :)
