Hello All,
You have been a great help in the past and I've learned a lot. However, my mom's computer has been infected. Se continually gets the pop up window- Security warning Application cannot be executed. The file xxxxx.exe id infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus......

I've tried running Ad- aware in safe mode- ( I can only run things in safe mode. It will not allow me to run smitfraud for some reason. The other issue is that she has dial up so I'm going to have to download stuff here and run it at her house.
Is there something I can do?
Thanks
Dg

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