If I haven't already added my $0.02.
Go to Trend micro anti virus.
Download any of the 3 home demos.
download spybot S&D [freeware util] also at Trend
run the demo. I'd recommend the medium version vs stripped or pro.
Let trend clean up the mess.
Then run spybot S&D.
poof all gone.
Then take and try the demo for a month and see if things don't run a whole lot
Oh yeah a different browser than IE, such as firefox, might be a good move also
in the future.
To avoid getting infections, you have to be less of a target.
Apple, Firefox, anything other than M$ is less of a target.
Or you get a GOOD firewall, and anti virus program.
Oh and in the future assuming you follow the out with the bath water formula of
virus solutions [format everything] instead of prevention. Make your nextpost
clearer, such as identifying what ever it was you're infected with.
I'm guessing it's winspy something. It's out in the wild right now infecting
everything it touches.
You can't lay blame on anyone for this infection. It seeks you out.
