So, I have had viruses before, and am pretty sure that I have one now. In the past I've successfully (or so I thought) gotten rid of them, with help from this website. So I currently have the following programs on my computer for dealing with this type of thing: Smitfraudfix, CCleaner, RogueRemover, Spybot S&D, SuperAntispyware, AdAware2007, and HijackThis.

My latest problem is this little 1x1 inch box that says "time to die" and has an 'ok' button. It comes up after the computer has finished starting up, once the desktop is all set up and all the icons appear and whatnot. Then if I click on any of the icons, say a folder or mozilla firefox, the time to die box pops up. Nothing else has happened yet. I'm sure there's something wrong though, there must be right?? Thanks for your time guys, you're lifesavers!

I don't see an anti-virus listed in the steps you have taken so far. Did you perform a full system scan with your anti-virus?

Have your tried running your scans in "Safe Mode"?

If you don't have an anti-virus, please see BC's list of Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps. There are several free online anti-virus scans listed which you can perform.
