hi ! my name's vivian. i believe my computer has been attacked by a spyware or sadly worse. whenever i turn on the computer or go on internet explorer, popups would pop up as well as this window called 'program 1', a toolbar also added itself onto internet explorer, luckily i have mozilla firefox so i'm using it to type up this forum. i've tried scanning my computer with ewido anti spyware and asquared, however i dont' think it's doing anything. my computer is running on windows 2000.
please help! thanks :thumbsup:

Hello vivian

What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Ewido and a-squared are not enough.

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.

Then perform this online Virus scan:
[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.]
