    I ran your program on my computer and it found the security tool and took care of it but in the process it also either damaged or deleted my rundll32.exe file which left me with yet another headach. I have been unsuccessful at any restore of the rundll32.exe as of yet. Strange I found it in my system folder and tried to reinstall it from the run window from my system cd...it did not work but when i rebooted the rundll32.exe was in the trash.
    I am trying not to restore my entire system but I don't think I have a choice....
