  1. I'm having problems with the spyware trojan-spy.win32@mx, it keeps popping up a box telling me "System Alert: trojan-spy.win32@mx", trying to get me to download "official security software".

    How do I get rid of this? Please help, it's very frustrating!! :)

    Use something other than Trend Micro, and McAfee. They do not play nice together, and have mixed results on Trojans anway.
    Whatever you use, after a complete scan and removal, immediately reboot into SAFE MODE and run the scans again.
    Take a look at the free Avast, and AVG, and consider the free scans (that do not remove) by Panda, Symantec, and Computer Associates.
