Hello I was recently searching google for a video a friend told me about. I found the video but was instructed to install a media codec to do view it. Bad idea I know but ever since then I have had an icon in my tray that changes from a circle with a line through it and a question make icon that resembles the help icon in the start menu. I have tried using AVG free and Spybot S&D but neither has solved the problem. The icon says virus alert when I move my mouse over it and every 30 seconds or so a thing comes up that says your computer is infected! critical system error and stuff to that effect and it advises me to go download some anti-malware programs to remove it. The page it likes to is spywarequake or spywareuptodate.com which is also my home page no matter how many times I try to change it back to google. Here is my log from HJT.

I consider myself to pretty pretty good with computers but I don't know much about these programs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Few things might have happend all at 1 time which can slow your computer and or browsing down. My belifes is that sometimes that has something to do with ActiveX. Maybe Im wrong, but the best way to remove all of those is two things, 1 find and purchase a program called, "Your Uninstaller 2006" just incase it is viewable, it will show up if it is.
2, get Microsofts Defender 2 program and download it, install it and update it. Once youve done the update, make sure you run a full scan and then head over to check out your Systems Explores/IE Settings. There, you can reset your entire IE or FF Browser. You should be good to go.

That is the log after I did this. Please let me know if it is clean now. The icons in the tray are gone and my home page is back to normal I am now having any problems just wanting to make sure I got everything. Thanks for your reply I downloaded the Defender from microsoft and I am getting firefox as it seems to be more safe.
