okay...i have no idea how this happened.. but i got these pop-ups advertising spyware products saying im infected...i press ctrl-alt-delete and i realize i had two programs i didnt know running....which were mssearchnet.exe and nvctrl.exe. so what i did was i ran my ad-aware and norton virus scans and it didnt really work....so i booted the computer ion safe-mode and manually deleted mssearchnet.exe and nvctrl.exe. but then i noticed there were two other files with those same names included in the file name that are located in d:/windows/prefetch....so i cut the two files, placed them in another folder and deleted them there....The Problem: my IE does not work...as soon as i start it up it says "spyware has been detected, buy this product"....even though i use mozilla firefox as my usual browser i still need my IE for other things.....i have no idea what else i can do....any recommendations? i've attached my hijackthis log as well...thanks.. also can you guys recommend products for my pc? for performance, virus and spyware protection....ect i heard pestcontrol is the best...is it true?
