    Get rid of this!? tried countless of programs to get rid of it, spyware removers and anti viruses, removed laods from using them, except this 1. I cant find out the name of it and clicking on it ironically sends me to random spyware removal sites! Looked on msconfig cant find it on there either. Anyone know what I can do?!? [​IMG][/IMG]

    ***Note that the red circle with the line going through it is also that, and changes icon to some random green symbol every second***

    Should just be a case of:

    1) Get a decent anti-virus program (post what yours is please)
    2) Make sure its up to date (update definitions)
    3) Re-boot in Safe Mode (F8 during boot up)
    4) Run a full system scan
