I'm new to this forum. I've read a similar post earlier about something similar to what I have & I'd like some help if possible.
W/in the last few weeks I've noticed this magnifing glass in my start up org. box bottom rght. of my computer. (I have XP pro) on my computer I ran Malware/antimaleware & it did find three infected files( which I had removed) I aslo have Microsoft Security essentials which found nothing. after the malware full scan. It has since not found anything, but, I still get pop up windows saying a program was blocked from changing my browser settings. & I cant remove it.
It says "search settings has detected a change to your browsersearch settings" also every few hours my security center informs me that my firewall has been turned off, which I then turn it back on.

what can I do to get rid of this problem. Thank you for any help.
