I was pulling up some files for work today and noticed I have this file on my laptop. I can't delete it and I don't like that. Can someone help me figure out what this is and how to get rid of it. I did a search and the internet said it was a worm which I don't want on my computer.

I got money that says I'd have more problems with a mac than my old PCs. one mouse button, safari, OS X. Plus I don't want to find out what it costs to pay someone who was officially licensed by Macintosh to look at my computer. Lastly I can't afford one right now. This computer needs to last me another 6 months and it's done it's job for less than $50 a month.

Well I downloaded a freeware version of norton 360 and scanned it twice and it didn't find much. I guess I'm ok.

vbzip.dll is the library that allows Windows to open and create zip files as a native component and not have to use WinZip or another archive utility. It can be called from Visual Basic or simply loaded as a registered service.

.pdf files are Adobe Portable Document Format files, portable documents that can be read on your computer with the Acrobat Reader, you probably have the reader on your computer, and if you don't, the program to read them is easy to obtain and FREE.

PC's are actually quite superior to mac's, but do require more computer knowledge to successfully run them without problems. Mac's are ok, but I've grown up writing DOS programs and building PC's, so I'll never switch

PCs might require more knowledge at idle, but jsut wait until a mac starts doing something it's not supposed to be doing. Putting it right is a HUGE pain in the ass. (OS X is easier than OS 9, but dang, they still go out of their way to obscure a bunch of stuff beyond belief, which is fine unless you NEED to get to it to do what you want.)

I agree. For the most part, Mac's usually don't go wrong. A professor of mine was using an IMac to show a presentation to a class. It completely froze. When asked what he should do, a Computer Engineering student responded with, "Throw it out the window". Apparently he wasn't a Mac fan either...
