Tracking down and killing a virus - my virus scanner (Avast) is telling me scvhost.exe keeps trying to open malicious URLs. It also tells me I have a rootkit in the MBR. It doesn't seem capable of fixing either of these problems. What can I do? Windows Vista. [more inside]

I broke my WiFi support in Win2k. Everything works except the scanning - I can connect to a network only if I know the SSID.
There are various ways I can scan - netstumbler, IBM's tool for managing connections, or via Cisco's own software. They all used to work. Now they all detect nothing. [more inside]

Whenever I launch Winamp (the latest version) I get this error message: "Winamp has caused an error in MSVCRT.DLL. Winamp will now close." I've tried rebooting and reinstalling. I've scoured the net for support but found nothing clear. Does anybody have an easy to explain fix? I have a large playlist (almost 9000+ items). I don't know if that's the cause or if it can be worked around. Thanks in advance.
