Ok, sometimes I will get a minimized page at the bottom of my screen that just says:  . If I click on it it turns my whole screen grey. I have to hit ctl alt delete to make it go away and sometimes that doesnt even help! I try to right click on it and then hit close but then it makes my whole screen grey. Sometimes before I get the grey screen there are advertisements for things that take up the whole screen. Here is the code I got from the grey screen. I am not sure if this is spyware or what it is. Someone please help!

<script Language="JavaScript"><!--

function BringBack(){



setTimeout('BringBack()',600000 * 1000);




<script language="JScript">
if (navigator.javaEnabled()) {
document.write('<APPLET ID="applt" ARCHIVE="arc.zip" CODE="Counter.class" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1><PARAM NAME="ARGS" VALUE=" "></APPLET>');

Read about MySpace here. It is not a site I would recommend using.

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? If not, start here:

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.
Download and scan with MS Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Then perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.
