I downloaded msn plus and some plugins and ever since then I have this pop up that come on at the bottom above the task bar on my computer. I ran adaware and that is the only thing that gets rid og the pop up until I open explorere again, then it comes right back. The ad aware labesls it as a critical object called:Win32.TrojanDownloader.Swizzor.br. I turned off system restore, ran spybot and adaware and then did a trend micro housecall which told me i have no viruses. I turned system restore back on, and for a while the pop up did not appear, until it strated to again. I don't know how to permanently get rid of it.


Thnx Julia

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Ok here is my trouble.. I use Netscape to get onto the internet, but sometimes I open things that have to goto Internet Exployer, and just as soon as I get the Internet Exployer screen, it freezes up, and no matter what I do, I have to unplug the whole computer and reboot. What if anything can you do to help me with this problem or tell me where to goto? Thanks for your help, I just hope someone can help.. I am a relative new computer user... Thanks again.. Dawn
