First off Windows can't even read linux partitions so it is impossible that a virus could get on through linux unless you specifically copied one over and ran it. I would suggest doing the registry scan which is safe and won't hurt suse. Also you should download spy bot search and destroy so that you can remove any spy ware that could be potentially slowing down your machine. Maybe some antivirus is in order but I wouldn't invest the money if you aren't using the machine. I think there are some free anti-virus solutions out there. Good Luck.

Dear All,

I am dual booting with win2000 and Suse8.2pro. I only use Suse, however I went into my win2000 yesterday briefly to check on something and noticed that it is not acting right. The cursor is lagging and it would shutdown on its own after a few minutes of use. I am hoping an email virus did not get to it through my linux email.

Anyway I want to fix it by going into dos and using scanreg/all but will that wipe out my Suse as well? I will not do this until I know for sure it will not hurt my Suse 8.2 setup.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Marcia
