I believe I have a trojan or some kind of spyware, when I start my PC my screen saver will not load up and in the bottom right corner next to the time I have a red circle with a white X that says "Fatal Error! The media system on your computer is corrupt. Update your video codec immediately to resolve the issue. "

If I double click on it then it trys to open to the web using "G5readericon45g.exe" and will go to a site "http://wincodec.net/?id=8" and this of course asks you to pay for a video codec. I have downloaded windows media player 11 which says it has all the needed codecs but this did not resolve the issue. I have also tried to do a system restore and that did not work either. I have also noticed that I can not access task manager and I have no programs listed under add/remove programs named wincodec or anything simliar to remove.

If anyone has experienced anything like this or knows how to remove it please advise, thanks!
