Hi guys, i'll take the oppurtunity to introduce myself at the same time, as this is my first post. I'm not that big of a techy, but I've been lurking your site for a bit of time now, and this is where I get most of my info. Well last night, I was trying to download directX the newer version and I downloaded something completly diffrent from lack of paying attention and I have scaned my computer 3 or 4 times, and Symantec does say the trojan was removed but still I get pop-ups of Spyware downloads. I also have an Icon on the notification area of my toolbar. Here's what hijackthis had to say. And I'm not sure whatelse I can do. My taskmanager was locked also, but I have fixed that problem.
