    Hi v3loc1ty have you tried Microsoft Safety Scanner. You will need IE7 browser as I'm not sure if its IE8 compatible. Its what I use when I want a second opinion. LINK: Windows Live OneCare safety scanner: Free online tool for PC health and safety. Works with XP but has Vista beta. This will check everything including registry and updates etc.

    I always try to scan after downloading with Norton 09 before running software. With Softpedia.com I have had problems before with them so I tend not to use there website. Personally I always look on CNET first to find software demos and shareware also computeractive.co.uk is a good download base, its a magazine in the UK and can be trusted. Out of curiosity what is "gridmove"?
