Every time I turn on my computer an alert comes on in my taskbar that looks like a Windows Update icon and give me a virus alert. This alert tells me that my PC is infected with spyware and I have to use an anti-spyware program to fix the problem. Clicking on the Icon sends me to Security Center - Microsoft Internet Explorer. I have downloaded the software and of course it identified problems on my computer and now I have to pay to buy the software to eliminate it. I already have Norton, Adaware, Sybot. Don't know if I have been swindled or not

I followed your laundry list of things to do. The only thing I couldn't do in safe mode was run Ewido, but I did it in without safe mode.
Here is the hijack and the results from ewido and active scan. The 2 files in active scan are the ones giving me the problem.

Please do both of the following before we start if possible!:

1) Please print off these intructions - they will be needed later when internet access is not available.
2) Save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above.
At the moment you may feel like you battling with your computer to keep it running smoothly, but doing the following things should most certainly help getting it back to how it was
_____________________

Download KillBox here: http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip
Save it to your desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.
_____________________

With IE closed, run Hijack This again.
Put a checkmark on these entries and hit "fix checked":

O3 - Toolbar: SecurityToolbar - {736b5468-bdad-41be-92d0-22ae2ddf7bcb} - C:\Program Files\Security Toolbar\Security Toolbar.dll (file missing)

_____________________

Boot into Safe Mode

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it.
Now put a tick by Standard File Kill.
In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file.
It will ask for confimation to delete the file.
Click Yes.
Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\Documents and Settings\bob rohringer\Favorites\Antivirus Test Online.url
C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchosts.dll

_____________________

Manually delete this folder:

C:\Program Files\Security Toolbar
_____________________

Please Navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder.
Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder. (if you cannot delete some items it's fine!)
_____________________

Then go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box.
The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.
_____________________

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options.
On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files".
Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK.
Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button.
Click Apply then OK.
_____________________

Empty the Recycle Bin.
_____________________

Reboot to normal mode and post a new HJT log
