I was recently infected with spydawn and downloaded prevx1 to get rid of it. however, my computer has been glitchy ever since. Sometimes internet exporer will not load and sometimes when i try to open a folder from the start menu the taskbar freezes. Is this still spydawn or is prevx1 a virus as well? Your help is much appreciated.
