I'm having this problem since yesterday. I have balloons in the bottom right corner that continue to say the following:
Trojan-Spy.win32@mx --- Type spyware/trojan vulnerable. Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2003/Win XP/Win Vista Description: spyware program that sends confidential information to a remote attacker. Protection: click this balloon to download official security software.
Around the same time, my homepage also kept turning into asafetypage.com. I ran some searches and was able to take care of that myself. Not sure if it has anything to do with this but thought I should mention it.
Anyways, I click the balloon in the bottom right and it tells me to buy Antivirgear. I've never heard of this so I went and bought norton Internet Security 2008. This didn't help and probably wasn't needed. Oh well, I'm computer illiterate so Symantec made some money off me. I can get over that but I still need/want this problem to leave.
I have a built computer that I bought from someone. It has Windows XP Professional. Like I said, I bought Norton Internet Security 2008. I also use Ad Aware. My total physical memory is 768 MB and total virtual memory is 2GB.
I don't know if anyone can help but I would certaily appreciate anything you can do to help out. If you need any other information, please ask. Finally, I'm not too CPU literate so please explain as much as possible. Thanks again for all your help!
