    Hello - this site only has two (2) EXPERT spyware removal people and a couple or three accolytes - since both the experts are on vacation, you are advised to be patient OR seek help elsewhere if immediate assistance is needed.

    Sorry - :)

    First, Symantec Norton lists manual removal steps at their web site for infections their utilities detect. Might want to reference that.

    For spyware, I advise my customers the use the following 3 anti-spyware utilities:

    • Ad-Aware 2007
    • Spybot Search & Destroy
    • AVG Anti-Spyware

    All are free and can be downloaded via the Internet.

    TechSpot does not condone any form of piracy. Please do not download any more games. That is quite possibly the reason you are infected.

    Have you tried removing the downoaded games/files to see if the message goes away?
