How does windows vista even get viruses and spyware?? Everything you do pretty much needs to be confirmed with uac so I don't understand how these things can sneak in.

Vista can get viruses and spyware pretty easily, UAC on or off. No operating system is 100% secure, and when you are using a popular Microsoft OS, someone's gonna find a way around it.

yea uac just kept bugging me so i turned it off
i dont even know if it is virus related. nod32 didnt pick up anything and hijack this has just picked up a few unknown files in the winsock.
its running fine now, but i dont remember my hdd light blinking as much as its been doing lately.

formatted now it seems ok ... for now
just gotta hope.
