  1. Every time i open up control panel/mydocuments/my computer it crashes. then the second time i get

    "Your computer was infected by an unknown trojan. It's dangerous for your system (critical files can be lost)!Click OK to download the antispyware program to clean your system! (Recommended)"

    i cant open any windows explorer related window and after a few times getting the message my pc becomes very slow, forcing me to reboot. obviously i havnt clicked ok on the message i just needa know how to fix it. internet related programs work perfectly.

    EDIT: solved. please leave some comments though, as id like to see some other possible solutions

    I imagine that you found spyware/aware actually giving you this warning and removed it. Right?

    Legitimate programs don't give this type of message nor do they require you download their program to fix it!

    "other possible solutions"
    How can we do this when you didn't bother to tell us what your solution was??!!
    It would have been nice if you told us how you solved this instead of just asking for comments!!
