Hello, I'm new to this so be easy on me...
Well yesterday, June 22nd I got a notification from Zone Alarm that they had a update out, so of course I downloaded it and restarted my computer. And when my computer was back on, after a little bit of research, I discovered I had the Spyware Quake stuff now on my computer. So I goggled and found your website, where I went through the automated Spyware Quake removal tutorial. I did this 2 times because the first time I messed up and didn't do it in safe mode, although it did get rid of all the popups except for that blinking yellow triangular warning one...So I did it a second time the right way and all the popups were now gone...After this I ran an Adaware Scan and it didn't find nothing big, just a couple cookies which I deleted. Then I ran a Norton antivirus scan and it found a Trojan Downloader file in the WINDOWS/system32 folder named ld8D9A.tmp, so I read how to delete it off their site and deleted it in safe mode. But to no avail because when I ran a scan again on the folder in normal mode it found the same thing but the file name changed to ldAA59.tmp....So I again went into safe mode and deleted this file, went back to normal mode and ran a scan on the folder and i think I got it because it didn't find anything...So just to be sure I ran a scan on my whole computer in safe mode again using Norton and it didn't find nothing. After this I followed your instructions at the end of the automated removal of the Spyware Quake and went to the Panda site and did a scan of my computer and it found 7 different things, which I'll list right now:

Incident Status Location

Spyware:Cookie/QuestionMarket Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Cookies\alex@questionmarket[1].txt
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\smitRem\Process.exe
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\smitRem.exe[smitRem/Process.exe]
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/HideWindow.A Not disinfected C:\hp\bin\FondleWindow.exe
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/KillApp.B Not disinfected C:\hp\bin\KillIt.exe
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/MyWay Not disinfected C:\Program Files\MyWay\SrchAstt\1.bin\MYSRCHAS.DLL
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Program Files\Roguescanfix\Process.exe

So basically I'm just wondering if someone can check out a log or something to make sure I got all the bad stuff off my computer. Also i turned off my system restore, because I read to do that at the symantec site, and it wasn't working anyways, thats the first thing I tried. And I can't get my homepage to change from the default msn.com site either...So I know I wrote a bunch of stuff down, but any help will be very appreciated...

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
