SAS can get infected, too in General Questions Posted August 2, 2010 I've just spent the last four hours scanning selective files on D drive and believe I've found the problem. You were quite correct in your assessment; the problem wasn't an infection of SAS. I've also purchased a Lifetime version of SAS Pro. Now all I have to do is figure out how to configure SAS to ignore any file which begins with "Xandros". Xandros is my Master O/S while Windows XP Pro only thinks it's the Master because it can't "see" Xandros. Xandros (a Linux-based system), however, "sees" everything. My thanks to you and your patience with me.
