Yes, I have had the same problem. some of the suggestions given to me are this. before downloading the file check it with Bitzi and see if it is rated. also check the size of the file. Most of the ones I found had a size of 871.00 kb (somewhere in that range). If the size doesn't look right then usually it is too small. i will look for the thread that discusses the virus. Also watch files that look funny (for example: T_H_I_S. Also check this and see if it helps.;threadid=41432

I have also been told that zip files are easy to infect, sort of like an exe file. So be sure to scan before unzipping.

Hope this helps you some.

good luck,
