I got this virus a while ago while trying to download a no-CD crack for the sims 2.(I own it i just lost the CD). At first, it would constantly interrupt and minimize any programs i was running and bring up ads. I removed what i thought was the virus, and it stopped minimizing programs, but apparently traces of the virus still remain, and its seriously dragging down my computer speed. Here is a Hijackthis log, with the programs that i suspect to be the virus in red: UPDATE: it brought up this site in Mozilla: Actually, i find that pathetic attempt to trick me very amusing.
