I was too hasty in clicking and hit OK instead of avoiding an EXE download/run Friday - got spyware and viruses. Cleaned up the spyware and virused and did Windows XP Pro SP2 Reinstall, and virus checks, two different Spyware checks and was left only with the yellow letters on blue background "Warning - Spyware threat has been detected on your PC.

I downloaded ComboFix and ran it according to instructions - problem seems to be cleared up, but instructions said to post log and hijack this log on a site like this one - is it OK to post those, or would it be wasting space here?
