First thought...
Windows _____, _____ Edition, __-bit with Service Pack _ (if applicable)?

Second thought...
What patches do "Belarc Advisor" and "Shavlik" tell you that you need (list 
3 or 4...)?

Last thought...
If this is Windows XP or Vista - have you ever installed BETA service packs?

Start | Run | WINVER | OK: What's the Build number displayed here?

Open Add/Remove Programs: What's the KB number of the most recently 
installed "Security Update for Windows XP" and what's the Installation date?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your 
subscription current?  What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? 
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the 
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought 
it)?

Is Automatic Updates enabled?

[To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you quote all of the

Did you install SP3 via Windows Update and are you certain WINVER reports 
"version 5.5"?

> ...had to load in an older backup...

Explain, please.

> Was running mcfee, then Norton, now back to mcfee

Norton and McAfee applications are notorious for not uninstalling (or 
upgrading) cleanly.

1. Download the Norton Removal Tool, saving it to your desktop: 
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

2. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the taskbar).

3. Double-click on the file you saved in #1 above to run the utility. Don't 
TOUCH your keyboard until the run completes, then reboot.

4. Now run this McAfee three-step fix: 
http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100507

NB: After completing Step #1 of this fix (uninstall McAfee), make certain 
that the Windows Firewall is enabled!  You're "working without a net" now so 
don't do ANYTHING else online until you've completed Step #3 of the fix!

5. Manually & repeatedly update the McAfee application until you get a "no 
more updates" prompt.

6. Open Internet Explorer (only) to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com | 
Select CUSTOM and scan | Install any Critical Security Updates offered 
(e.g., KB980182; KB979683).  If a Root Certificates update is listed in the 
Optional Software updates category on the left-hand side of the scan results 
window, install it to take full advantage of IE8's enhanced security.

Bet "version 5.5" is a typo.

Did try the reset- just the regular one- no luck. Since it is an old backup 
that I'm 
currently working off of ( before I switched to Norton) I would have to 
think that it
is pretty much a "clean" version on Mcfee- so doing the antivirus thing does 
not
seem like the answer to me but when I have some time I'll play around with 
it.

And then dismissed out of hand?

Could that "old backup" be horked, too?  You betcha!  Especially if WINVER 
really reports "version 5.5 (build 2600.xpsp_sp3_qfe.90804-1456: seervice 
Pack 3."

See...

     Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?
     http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700813.aspx

Back-up any personal data (none of which should be considered 100% 
trustworthy at this point) then format the HDD & do a clean install of 
Windows.  Please note that a Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT 
fix this!

HOW TO do a clean install of WinXP: See 
http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html#steps and/or Method 1 in 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978307

After the clean install, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" so 
take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting 
the machine to the internet or a local network (i.e., other computers) and 
before using a flash drive or SDCard that isn't brand-new or hasn't been 
freshly formatted:

Tip: After getting the computer fully-patched, download/install KB971029 
manually: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971029

NB: Any Norton or McAfee free-trial that came preinstalled on the computer 
when you bought it will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is 
reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the free-trial and download/run the 
appropriate removal tool before installing any updates, Windows Service 
Packs or IE upgrades and before installing your new anti-virus application 
(which will require WinXP SP3 to be installed).

You've tried the "agressive mode" too in the meantime? If not, go ahead.
Still no luck? *Uninstall* McAfee *completely* and just in case you have
a personal firewall application running in the background too, uninstall
that one too. Instead enable Windows Firewall and give Microsoft Security
Essentials a try.
