my computer recently started having many popups and i noticed a strange program under add/remove programs called toolbarr 888. i tried to delete it but it said that this program had allready been deleted, and the uninstall entry was gone for it. i also noticed that without my permission, my firewall had been turned off. every few minuted or so a messege from avg free pops up saying i have a virus then it heals it, and a few minutes later i get another. so i typed %temp% and deleted ALL of the files in that folder. i dont know what else to do so i really ned some help.

I am running windows service pack 2
my antivirus is avgfree
my spyware scanner is lavasoft
and i use windows firewall

PLEASE HELP ME!!! :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:
