spyware doctor keeps finding an infection called trojan-downloader.banload.bxm at least every time i get on my computer, it says it cleans it but it always come back. it says that it is coming from the same registry entry, but i have no idea how to edit my registry or if there is anything more to it. the registry entry was "hkey_users\s-1-5-21-268814886-1291103218-2880121485-1006\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\internet settings\user agent\postplatform, embedded w... browser from hxxp://bsalsa.com/
this downloader may have also been the one that put two other files on my computer, but through all i have done they haven't shown up anymore.
i have looked into and downloaded most of the free anit spyware/malware/etc products from this site and am going to be running scans, but somehow i imagine that completely getting rid of this thing will take more than a scanner can do....but i hope that some of these programs will at least keep it from getting worse. since not only have things gotten slower(all of this being even after a reset to factory settings and clearing the restore points), but also things have froze up, especially under certain conditions when using firefox.
thank you for any help and advice, i really don't want to loose my old things from my computer (specially being a lot of my music, video and work) by just reinstalling windows.
