  1. a pop-up comes up every time i open something new. it says "whatever".exe.badimage. it stops the progress of whatever i'm doing. also my wireless printer has quit working wirelessly. i forgot to save the log for the super spyware the first time and deleted the first round, so that's the second round.

    thanks.

    Hi, i have just check your logs and i release that u have a very common virus called Antivirus 2009 or av2009.exe, it comes as a popup and start scanning your pc and tells you that u r infected, so that u can buy it, but what happens, in the background, its busy infecting you. so if u have nothing to loose, just format the machine and start again off the network or internet.
    or else u have to scan you hard drive from another Pc that has an Antivirus. i recommend Kaspersky or mcafee.
