I downloaded the FunWeb Products tool bar which came with Smiley Central. I used Smiley Central and then my friend told me that it is a virus. I now need to remove it from my computer and/or stop the virus. I've already removed it from the control panel, but what should I do now? Thanks.

Hi dudedothedewnow,

Follow these instructions from PC Hell: Smiley Central Removal.
Except omit Step 5.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Step 9 recommends Spybot S&D and Ad-aware. You can scan with them but a more effective scan can be performed using SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "Safe Mode".

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
