:P
Thanks for your reply.
But now, I am out of the problem.
I removed one of the anti-virus programs listed automatically in the add/remove programs list.
I have scanned the system using norton's antivirus 2006 which I already have.
I even updated the latest virus definitions.
Finally, I had some of them remaining namely psw.x vir Trojan,etc.,.
I have always remained patient to close all the redirected pages popped -up messages by some anti- virus sites and spyware viruses.I even disabled the system recovery option.
Then I have uninstalled norton(it was unable to detect some of them).
I was out of the problem then.
I have installed some other anti-virus then.
Thankyou once again.
