My husband is my tech guy and he is not here. Sorry I do not know much about computers.
You can get a bunch of free anti virus and anti spyware stuff from CNet downloads. It’s all free!!
I would suggest;
Spybot Search and Destroy
Avg Anti spyware
You must update your stuff every week to keep up with all the new threats.
You should set up a firewall as well,
Zone Alarm is very good
Register for downloads, it’s free.
I’ve used this site with no problems and good results.
go to microsoft and download windows defender tells you about trojan horse and how to get rid of it bsssssssssssssss no i got the trojan horse …..only kidding.
ooohhh boy spunky… i have to say… I HAVE THE SAME ISSUE…. i run something on my computer to check out stuff.. but it just sends them to some place to be checked… have no idea what it does.. lol.. its called comodo or something like that… i too need information on what is the best way to get my computer to stop hiccuping…
Ok heres the question. Does that warning just popup randomly or does it come up when you use your spyware removers or anti virus? Need a little more information. :-)
I made a post about this subject some time ago, it’s this one
It has all the information you need to protect and remove :- Spyware, Virus and lots of other stuff from ever getting on to your computer in the first place.
If none of that helps, you will have to take the most drastic step you can. That is to clear everything of your computer and set it back to it’s factory settings. That is how it was the first day you bought it.
Then you need to read this. http://www.cnetnetworks.com/editorial…
It actualy tells you that this website puts web bugs on your computer, gives your information to other websites that put bugs on your computer and track your website activity.
By using this website you have allowed them to do this.
My advice is to clean everything off your computer then run every maintenance program you have. OPnce that’s done, use your recoery system to rebuild your system. It’s quite a bit of work but, it’s the best way to get rid of any and all viruses.

Do I need to delete Spy Sweeper? Paid good money for it…Have installed spybot search and destroy..loll..love that name…
Do this first. Download http://www.comodo.com/products/free_p… The free firewall that is.
Install it and run it. It should find out and tell you what actions you should take.
It take quite some time to complete this.
Then come back and let me know if it has worked for you or not.
I am login off for a short break, will be back soon.

Thep, went to the site. Same with Bear’s free firewall…which one do you use..there are several..any of them
Download the free firewall from the link above. Then follow the instructions I gave you.
I think it’s the first one you see. The one called free firewall.
All the advise you’ve been given is great however, the virus will still be there. Back up all important files and then run scan disk followed by disk defrag, followed by any other maintenance program you have. Once you do this, use your recovery to bring your computer to where it was and then, use your back-up system to bring the system where it was. As far as I know (a former computer systems analyst), this will Guarentee you’ll be rid of the trojen horse
