    Well, I dont really know if this is a big problem but i think its kind of wierd
    The AVG resident shield seems to be catching some virus called Dowloader.Agent.AS, and shows me the location so I can go delete it, but it reinstalls itself id say about every 10 minutes in a subfolder of C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temp, and then the resident shield tells me again and I go delete it. But when i run the antivirus it doesnt catch anything. My deleting doesnt seem to be doing any good because it just comes back. Anyone know anything about this virus?

    It's most likely adware and not a virus, a lot of anti-virus software has started picking up adware and spyware (which in my opinoin isn't a good thing). Run spybot or adware on your computer and have it run a scan to pull it out of your regestry and what not.
