  1. hey i have tried lots of antispy and antivirus, and the closest i got was by using the yahoo toolbar antispy to remove the threat, but it just keeps coming back. my norton internet security doesnt see it even after updates, but not it does not work at all. and i keep getting popups and my pc fans are getting louder probably because the virus or whatever it is eats my cpu usage to the max. if anyone can help me please i have lots of important stuff on my pc and do not want to re format. i am using windows vista home pro sp1
