All of a sudden I have

DO NOT FOLLOW THIS LINK
http://count.zcominc.com/link/count.php?id=94&out=1
on my system. Each time I start up this tries to do something, but the script crashes.

I have run HiJaak This, Spybot, Ad-aware. AVG, Spy Sweeper, Malwarebytes, Reg Vac, SDFix, Super Spyware Pro and a few others now; and yet it remains.

I tried to Google for it, but the information is beyond me.

Can anyone help me get rid of this thing?

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

On my computer, it was the Firefox add-on "FlashGet" causing this problem. I changed over to "FlashGot" and everything seems fine now. Check the McAfee SiteAdvisor to see the relationship between FlashGet and zcominc.

hello! in my case it was from 'flash get'. i started getting the same warning from saturday (i guess u too), every time i turn on my computer. i tried to clean the registry with 'regtool', but at the end i had to remove 'flash get' from startup (start > run > msconfig > remove the tick from 'flash get' in startup menu)... it's not the virus, it's just annoying nonsense. don't worry.
