Im running windows xp sp2.
I first got this problem with virusburst. I got rid of virus burst with the directions posted here. After that, I got more ads and now I'm getting Adult Friend Finder Ads. I'm very concerned, since I have young ones using my computer all the time. I also get an error message atthe bottom of my screen in a yellow triangle. it says "Your computer is affected with the latest version of PSW.x-Vir tojan. It steams private information, etc, etc." The name of the "virus" in the error message is always changing. Please help! :thumbsup:

You're in need of expert assistance. You should follow these instructions Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log
Then post it HERE, By clicking on new topic like PSW.x-Vir trojan.
Once you've posted it PLEASE DO NOT make any changes to your PC until the HJT team tells you what to do.
In the meantime you can read thru the pinned topics at the top of the Hijack forum.

I did the preperation to posting the log and after running all the programs it told me to I had to restart. Now it's working fine wihtout the annoying ads and all. Should I still go through the whole thing and post up my log?

That is up to you. Best advice--post a log.

Agreed if you post it you will be certain it's gone when they look and tell you.
