An icon was added to my command buttons. Red circle with exclamation mark, saying that my "computer is infected". I did not click the button.
Adaware detects "Psguard", but can't remove it. Tried Sspysweeper, but can't remove it.
Any help would be appreciated

Try this removal procedure in the Malware Self-Help & Reading Room: How to remove the Smitfraud / Psguard / Virtual Maid

If your still having problems or don't feel comfortable with doing this yourself, then please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped.

PSGuard is not reccommended antispyware tool. For more information check PSGuard Review. Also before downloading or buying an antispyware product you should check a recommended anti-spyware tools list.
