I think that my computer may be infected in some way. After scanning the computer with Spybot Search & Destroy I received a error message that stated: "This action may not be performed completely since you are not an administrator. If you want this performed for all users, please run this application elevated as an administrator" when trying to fix the selected problems. This confused me because this was an administrator account. After clicking "ok" an error message states "Unexpected error in fixing problems (Cannot create file "C:\Windows\wininit.ini".Access is denied)." I then clicked "ok" again, and then a warning message popped up that stated: "Some problems couldn't be fixed; the reason could be that the associated files are still in use (in memory). This could be fixed after a restart. May Spybot-S&&D run on your next system startup?" Then the next pop states "0 problems fixed. 111 problems could not be fixed. You should have an administrator scan and fix again!"

I am not sure if this helps but the items that Spybot was trying to destroy are: FunWebProducts (43 entries PUPS); MyWay.MyWebSearch (48 entries PUPS); MyWebSearch (21 entries Trojans).

The computer runs Windows Vista and I am not sure what other information you would need.

Thank you for your help.
