Download Security Check by screen317 from here http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/SecurityCheck.exe or here http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
Save it to your Desktop.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
Please post the contents of that document.


*** We'll get rid of all these scanner apps when we're sure you're 'clean'.

So far, everything is looking good. Tell me how your computer is running, now.
Also, have you reset your home page?

It sounds as though Jacee has done her magic. Complete her cleanup instructions and then I'll continue with the housekeeping tasks from our exercise.

I'll ask you do cleanup the utilities I suggested using, just as Jacee cleaned up the utilities she asked you to use.

Then you'll have to run Windows Update (WU) until everything is updated.

I'll post those instructions after a short while - I want to make sure Jacee is finished and you have cleaned up per her instructions.
