A few weeks ago, I was searching for an old classmate and clicked on a site with a video. Having never encountered anything malicious like this before (Norton 360 didn't seem to pick up on anything either), I clicked to see the video and installed an Active X control. Big mistake!! I got a trojan horse that took over my computer, disabled my task manager, rerouted me to other sites, etc.

I went through the steps to make sure I removed everything and even got a clean hijack this report from this site. Well, I occasionally google my name, and when I googled it last week, several strange sites came up. They look like blogs and they all have a video. The topics range from Red Screaming Films to Phospholipids to Free Sex Movies. Below the video clips, there are blocks of random words such as yoga cats my name obama clinton sex, etc. The sites are in a variety of languages, too.

Is this keyword stuffing? Could someone have my identity? I've checked my credit report and bank account and everything seems to be okay. I think this has to have something to do with my getting infected several weeks ago. I've reported the sites to Google and Yahoo, but they haven't been able to do much.

Has anyone else experienced this? It's been very unnerving for me. I feel violated because the sites come up when you do a search for me.

Hello maryl1981,
