System Alert - Trojan or Virus?

  1. I hope I am in the right spot. I am having these funny system alert pop ups. There is a circle in the system tray that flashes back and forth with a question mark in it. I have begun the preliminary removal instructions and have gotten this log from hijackthis.
    one system alert just says there has been virus activities detected. The others have a triangle with and ! in the middle that gives names, such as psw.x-vir or trojan.win32@mx or it says there are malware threats. If I select the alert it will take me to a website to download a virus scanner. Please help.

    Go and read this thread and if you decide to clean your system, read this thread and post AVG and HJT logs as attachments into this thread. If you want to reformat, I'm not too knowledgeable in that area so somebody else will have to help you through that.
