>.<! I never thought i'd be asking for advice on how to fix my comp, but here it goes.

Ever since i was bombarded with pop-ups, my computer had this fatal error message on it all i remember it saying was TROJAN.HTML.smitfraud or something like that, anyhow i got rid of that by using another registry key and it got rid of that. Now the problem is that little red circle with a white exclamation mark in the center on my task bar right next to the clock. It keeps on saying "Your computer is infected....Please download antivirus / spyware removal software" I tried avast, and microsoft antivirus...but nothing. And also my computer is running extremely slow, but i don't have any popups...Could it be the cause of this little red ball? IF YOU CAN AT ALL HELP! it would not go unappreciated! THANKS

Hi,
Now there is one entry that needs to be removed.
Boot in safe mode. Go to Start > Run and type services.msc and press ENTER. In the Services window that opens up, navigate to the service named Power Manager (PowerManager) and right-click it, and select "Properties".
In the Property window, click Stop in the "Service Status" option box. After this, in the "Startup" option box, select Disabled from the dropdown menu. Click "Apply" and then "OK".

Next, run HijackThis, and click "Do only a system scan" and select this entry in the list:-

O23 - Service: Power Manager (PowerManager) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe (file missing)

Then click "Fix Checked" in HijackThis.

Reboot the PC to normal mode, and run HijackThis again and post a new log.
