What I find so @#$% frustrating is that everyone goes to download "the 
patch."  My ISP warns me that if I pick up the virus, they'll disconnect me 
until I get the computer cleaned, and they give me an URL and tell me to go 
download "the patch."  I go where I'm told, and am told to activate XP's 
firewall (I'm very reluctant to do that since I have Norton's firewall in 
place and activated), and follow their other two "steps."  I do not see a 
@#@$%^ patch to download.  Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  Margaret L
