What makes you believe that? Is another program advising you of malware? If so, what is the name of that program and what is the name of the malware and its location?
...it seems to have brought some kind of Malware to my machine

Ad-Aware 2007 works with 2000/2003 Server/XP/Vista and can be downloaded from the vendor, lavasoft.com in the link I provided above.
First, I am running Windows XP Professional SP2 which I am pretty sure is compatible with Ad-Aware 2007.
Second, I am NOT sure from which link I downloaded Ad-Aware

There are many (in my opinion) better anti-spyware applications out there (and free) than the current version of Ad-Aware. Having two or more of these will help provide adequate protection for your computer.

Thanks Quietman, for the links. However, this information is from 2004, included Ad-Aware as a prominent recommendation, and perhaps should be updated. I too am interested in "better" security software apps being available now that an old stand-by like Ad-Aware has evidentally fallen from favor. And I just bought Ad-Aware's "pro" upgrade (tired of the slow updates), having had it on my computer for several years based on BC's recommendations. Slightly computer literate persons as myself look to BC as "gospel" for all security advisos. Again, please consider updating the above links if long-term, well informed BC moderators are suggesting other (unnamed) options as "better".
