  1. Umm...i downladed a couple tihngs the other day. I downloaded

    AnyDVD
    DVDShrink

    and i think my computer was fine after those two. But then i downloaded:

    Ares

    afterthat, i started to get these popups fromspysweeper whenever i went to open my AIM that said that AIM was trying to install a BHO (?) and askingme permission to get it?

    Also, my music wont play. My winamp, this morning i woke up and went to turn it on, and its silent. I checked the mute and volume and its all like it usually is, ON, but no sound is coming out.

    I ran adaware, ccleaner, spybot, spysweeper, and ewido and cleaned out the stuff it found and its still doing these things.

    I am super confused. Please help!

    You need to UNinstall that Ares junk immediately.
    It is a bad P2P filesharing program, as you have found out.

    Try Ewido, Adaware, Spybot.
