Well, recently, my computer came up with a "Critical System Error" message in the bottom bar.

Now, I've done some research and found out it's osmething like SpyQuaker or whatever, it scares you into thinking you have a virus to buy their software.

A lot of sites suggested the same procedures to remove it, and I've seen people post saying it works great: But it doesn't work for me!

A list of what I've tried:

Ad-Aware SE Personal
Spybot Search & Destroy
Norton Internet Security

AND, I've followed steps involving rebooting my computer in safe mode and running:

Ewido Anti-Spyware
Killbox (search for specific files, told me "Files not found" )
Rogue Scan Fix
FixSQ
SmitRem
ATF Cleaner

For some reason, none of this worked.

Neither did going to my Add/Remove Programs looking for "PCODEC," and looking for virusz.dll (something like that) in my C:\\windows folder.

Here's a HijackThis log, the only thing I haven't tried yet. Someone please tell me if I can solve this...
