i have the same problem as described by toolegion, topic102347 in another thread. 1) " Security System Protection Control Panel " TrojanDownloader.XS. It is a White and Blue window that says 'Security system Waring" 2) A red box mentioning something to the extent of: Alert Details File: C:\WINDOWS\wml.exe Threat:Abebot 3) System Integrity Scan Wizard Warning: Your computer may have critical errors in Windows registry and file system! and 4) Yellow Triangle with exclamation mark in the bottom right corner where the clock is located. Its constantly prompting me there is spyware infecting my system and is directing me to a website to download some spyware remover. i attempted the first set of steps that was on the link above. VundoFix.exe found a file but was not able to remove it and after restarting there was no popup for me to click on to fix the problem. so running it again resulted on a another restart. i have included VirtumundoBeGone, and SmitfraudFix. i have been living with the popups for 2 weeks now but hadn't had the time to try to get rid of them. I'd appreciate any help. i have also attached my hijackthis log. I'm going to try to get vundo fix to remove the file and will update if i was successful.
