    I have the paid version of McAfee installed on my computer, but it's not fully removing 2 viruses that I got from a website while viewing it.

    dwm.exe virus ( not desktop windows manager / there's another one, in different folder location, so I know it's a virus )
    can't remember the other name.

    I normally disable them Via task manager. McAfee can't detect them, so I installed another software and removed them.

    The only thing that I can think is that they're still in the registry.

    Any idea on how to remove them, without uninstalling my anti-virus software, because I paid for a yearly subscription?

    Hi there

    I find hijackthis a great tool to get rid of nasty unwanted things on my computer. It does not seem to work with the postman though who keeps giving me nasty unwanted bills.
