Hey guys,

I have a warning label on my desktop that reads:
Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!
Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean up your computer!

How do I get rid of this???

This is a continuation from help recieved in chat.

Hey bkolpitcke,
Did you get HiJackThis to run? I know we got to that point in chat, and when HJT was run it should have produced a log file.
That would be needed for us to see what is going on in your machine.

Let me know if you need help finding the log or getting it posted.
