    Actually I do Christine (Norton 2003) with a live update subscription. I may not have updated lately though and I have noticed that my homepage seems to get hijacked to some kind of search page when I sign on and a few other "quirks"
    Guess I better do another scan.

    Yep, found two viruses. Actually it was the same virus showing up twice. Last system scan was March 16 so these are new.
    Trojan Bookmarker F
    This one is nasty..literally! Guess what it one does?
    "adds pornographic bookmarks to the internet explorer favorites folder" and also redirects searches that use msn.com to use a search site that features mainly porn sites.
    My Norton antivirus could not delete it so I had to do it manually which required disabling system restore and downloading new virus update.

    Wow, I've never seen that one before!

    Thanks for the update, I had sent a mail to the other person with that URL and hopefully he reads here.

    It is a shame that nobody is suing these people. Recently someone sued VISA/MC for facilitating transactions and that's exactly what one should do with all these spammers, and especially the ones that distribute these viruses. They wouldn't do it if they didn't make money.

    Sorry for the off topic turn in this thread, but it's really important that people become aware of these problems!

    Also - Christine don't know if I can still post on this - if its problem, delete

    Crystal,
    Did you ever find out anything about where to find out if a debt was discharged in Ch7 or not? I have similar situation, this was from 1997 filing when Student loans could be discharged if within a certain timeframe. They are on my list of creditors and didn't write or appear in response. Afterward the SL people said it was NOT discharged. In hindsight I can say my atty was an idiot who claimed he knew about SL's and didn't. Wouldn't return my calls when I tried to get an answer, his paralegal said she wasn't sure, Trustee wouldn't answer question-said to contact atty. In reading my paperwork, there is clause saying "these are not dischargeable...SL less than 5 yrs. old.."
    Mine were consolidated in 88, 2.6 yrs forebearance so that's mid-91=6 yrs.
    I thought the court decided. Am not suprised SL said it wasn't but that doesn't mean they're right. Had to do a Ch13 later in order to make payments and did get a hardship discharge of sorts - will be paying them another 6 yrs. I'm better informed now and just trying to get a straight answer abut the 97 BK - its harder because I'm now in another state. I just hate the thought of paying if the court did discharge this before, SL's opinion is...at the least biased. I tried for years to make lower payments with them and they always refused, and added over 15,000 in interest on an 11,000 loan. I had paid about 6,000. Grr!

    No problem with followup postings.

    It's really weird that nobody tells you whether it was discharged or not, and I have NO clue.

    Maybe Crystal will reply.

    And I had no idea what scum those student loan lenders are, Nelnet also owns a collection agency. I can only recommend AGAINST taking out any student loans - don't let your kids do it.

    Thank you Christine, I'll check there to see what I can find out.

    I would just pay off the smallest balances first and then NOT use the cards anymore. Good luck!
