I have managed to download my first spyware/malware.

If someone has experience with this, I hope you can help. I'm not sure how it happened. I believe that I clicked on a link off of Google, and it requested that I download a specific movie viewer online. At that point, it totally changed everything.

If someone can, please let me know if my updated McAfee anti-everything package should remove this on its own, or if I'm in for the long-haul trying to fix this myself.

Thank you!
