New here. Just encountered the whole "warning spyware" desktop problem. I need to make sure I got this right. Oh and one thing while I'm here: since it has happened I've followed the stickies (i.e., getting rid of spysherrif, and the long sticky with hijack this). But now this small icon [a red (X) ] keeps saying my computer is infected on the Quick Launch. Will that disappear once I fix from Hijack? Just a query.
