  1. I am having a 207 MB system alert popup on my computer, I do not know how it popped in; I find my computer slowed down due to that. However much I try to remove it from Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel, I am not able to remove it. Is it a sort of Virus? How to remove it? I will be thankful for information or if possible remote action removing it from my desktop. - malliksharma

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Download the Autoruns programme from HERE. When the programme runs, click options and make sure the "Hide Microsoft Entries" is ticked. Click the file menu and select refresh. Click the save icon and save the Autoruns log to wherever you want.

    Then, go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above. Also, attach the Autoruns log as well.

    Regards Howard :)
