Run two programs that are good (IMO): latest free version of Spybot S&D and latest free version of SUPERAntiSpyware.

http://www.superantispyware.com/downloadfi...ANTISPYWAREFREE Click on "click here".

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html Either one of the 3 download sites listed.

Run a reliable, updated AV program (e.g., AVG 8.0 or Avira AntiVir Personal, after removing McAfee AV from your system. IMO, McAfee has proven ineffective at doing what it is supposed to do.

You may keep the McAfee firewall, if you like...use the Windows firewall...or use a different 3d-party free firewall program.

You could also post your situation at BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ but I would try the other steps I mentioned first. Your decision :thumbsup:.
