Alright, I keep getting this little popup deal from my toolbar coming from a little red circle with a white X in the middle of it, that changes to a little earth with the Windows sign over it. It just goes back and forth to that. It also has a little popup that says "Your Computer is Infected!" And then goes on about dangerous malware, or whatever. I had this problem with Spy Sheriff before, and got rid of it using XoftSpy, but its' not working with this. The new problem is Spy Axe, which I seem to have uninstalled using XoftSpy, but the pop up is still coming up, and if you click it it brings up the Spy Axe website.

ALso, since I got rid of Spy Sheriff, whenever my comp starts up a few error messages come up. It seems like it is trying to run something that is no longer there.

Now, honestly, I have really no idea what anything is when it comes to computers. I have googled my problem and it seems that everyone is told to run something called Hijack This, but I cna't find it, don't know what it is, or what it does... I'm really lost here, so any help would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me insane, and all I want to do it throw my computer out the window. Thanks in advance,

joe

Alright... I was able to get rid of it following these instructions. One of my computer buddies pointed me in this direction. It worked for me, so I hope it works for you! This is the link with the instructions and the file that you need to DL. It's from another forum, so I hope it's not innapropriate to post it here. If it is, sorry about that. But it helped!

Install McAfee Antivirus it will automatically clean the infection, or use McAfee Stinger http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/ and ewido http://www.ewido.net/en/.

I tried to run a downloaded file and with it this virus was also installed. A red mark with white cross appeared in the tray, thankfully i had McAfee installed which automatically said 'a trojan has been found and has been deleted' and the cross disappeared
