Hello moreparkin and welcome to BC
I ran the combofix

", NOT for private use
. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer
. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
In order to provide you with the proper disinfection procedures, we need some additional information.
What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.
What security programs do you have installed? Please name them.
I have trojandownloader.exe on my computer
What alerted you to its presence? Can you provide a file path? An example of a file path is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VGA.DRV in which VGA.DRV is the file, SYSTEM is the folder it's in, WINDOWS is the folder SYSTEM is in, and C is the drive it's on.
I have many types of spyware and adware popping up
Can you please describe these? What do they look like? What do they say?
