Dear Matt and Exterminate it,

Thank you so much. This seems to have fixed the problem. Wow. That virus was in there pretty deep. A*G didn't even identify it. S****t would just freeze up when I tried to run it. But the update from Exterminate It, removed it.

Again, thanks.

Kind Regards,
Rev. Mel C. Montgomery
