Well... PCThread here: http://www.pcthreat.com/parasitebyid-6789en.html says that the symptoms are:
Pop ups (when I'm in FF, an IE window pops up, same for IE, an IE win pops up).
Windows aren't responding
Windows are crashing.

Thanks Skydie!

[edit]
If you look at the link in my first post, I have a HJT log

Ok first of all download MBAM (Malware Bytes) from this link http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-...4-10804572.html (it's safe) after that be sure to update Malware Bytes - from now on im going to call it MBAM - then AFTER it has updated I highly recommend you disconnect from the Internet (it's a trojan you never know) and then run a full system scan (as your sure your infected). Also it's be nice to know what types of protection you use (Anti-Virus,Firewall)

Actually... Before I posted this I did it, and it took around 5 hours to scan.. I didn't update it nor did I disconnect from the internet. It didn't get anything.. neither does AVG, but something still has to be on my computer -_-

A/V And Firewall:

Trend Micro
Spy-bot
Ad-ware
MBam
Avast
AVG
Windows Defender
SpyHunter

A lot.. Right? AVG is the one that detected the trojan, SpyHunter says MsnPlus contains a virus, is it?

Aparrently the website (www.pcthreat.com) hosts a program called Spy Hunter (im along the write lines) I read that it is a fake anti-spyware and hence I recommend you remove it immeaditly!

Ok if MBAM took so long and all those programs you have (except AVG ) couldn't find the virus it could possibly be that they've been disable by Malware (not 100% sure) download MBAM fresh from that link I gave to you and delete the old MBAM you have on your computer. I think you should disable all real time scanning apart from one (looking at that list I recommend keeping Avast!'s on) after instslling the new MBAM update it and try a quick scan then post the log

Nile on the contrary I believe you have way to many AVs installed

Ok! Thanks will do!

Lemme get this straight:

Turn off every real time protection but Avast!.
Turn off internet connection
Download new mbam - uninstall old
Post log?

Ok... Once I get another reply comfirming I will.. What do you mean its been disabled by Malware.

I've got all those installed b/c of the adware on my computer (which is most liely the trojan's doing), they were all requested.
