Somehow got this thing called KERNEL32.EXE on my PC and it's messed me up. My ZoneAlarm says its a virus and that I can "cleanse" my system of the "worm" with some kind of software. Anybody know about this? Where can I get it? What's it called? Is it expensive?

Use Norton Antivirus 2002...you can get it at Wal-Mart. I had the same virus and it cleaned it up just fine. The program should be around $30. medcop
