I have AVG as my anti-virus and I run Spy-bot regularly. A few days before Christmas I noticed that AVG was no longer in my task bar. I reinstalled it, but it still won't run in the task bar so I manually run it to get my updates, etc. The same time this happened, I started to get a message "Windows\system32\pmkll.exe cannot be found, remove it from registry" every time I started the computer. AVG found Trojan Horse Dropper Generic.THT in that file and can't remove it so its stored it a vault. Three days in a row I ran a full scan using AVG and all three days it listed this same trojan in the same file. This is also when the full-screen popups started even though I have my pop-up blocker on. I also started getting messages telling me that my computer wasn't protected from spyware, adware, etc. and a program from StorageProtector would start to download but I would close it before it could finish. From researching I learned that this is a bogus adware program. I can't find any storageprotector file on my computer. Another message I get popping up "Microsoft Visual C++ runtime library buffer overrun detected". I downloaded all the files you have listed on your preparation guide and some of them found some things. I would appreciate any help, I'm ready to take a sledge hammer to this computer.

Richie,

Thanks for responding to my post. I went ahead and wiped my hard drive, reinstalled Windows XP and purchased Bit Defender virus protection.
