Sorry, missed a word. Should read:

They're all viruses _to me_ ! :)

Or, just use the free version of Avira AntiVir. I think Lipman would not
recommend against that idea.
But Nod32 is an excellent paid anti-virus program.

Right. Thank you.

Re: Virus turns off the monitor

Avira AntiVir turned up:

ADWARE/Adware.Gen
ADWARE/Agent.54132
APPL/Nir.Cmd.E.1.B
TR/Trash.Gen
TR/Drop.Softomat.AN
TR/Spy.533120
TR/Spy.123520
TR/Spy.107136

They've all been removed. Still, the monitors turns off as it did.

I will ask the computer man to scan it with NOD32.

You have tried another monitor?

To check it's not a hardware problem, boot with a linux live CD
and see what happens.

I haven't got one. I am posting from a laptop. There was an older
desktop around I could use, but unfortunately no additional monitor.

This particular monitor works perfectly with the older desktop, so I
think it's fine.

I have never used Linux. I am not a computer person at all. I heard of
Linux, however, and it's said to be great. Actually, who can really
tell what will become of the computer industry in the end? It might
well be computer systems with dozens of OS's interchangable by the
click of an icon, all equality ingenious and efficient, but designed
to suit a different type of user/purpose.

I think :)
