Spyware infection: Spyware infection has detected!

  1. Best Techspot users,

    I come here with a cry for help. I have been infected with spyware. I can give you some details on it:

    It shows up as a small red shield, much like the windows ones, with a white cross through it.

    Whenever I hover over it, a balloon pops up with 'Spyware infection has detected!'

    I read through some other threads and decided to at least run HijackThis!. The log files are below.

    If somebody would be so kind as to help me out with removing this from my pc, I would be very gratefull.

    Thanks in advance,
