how do i get rid of it and any idea where something like that would have come from (and what damage could it cause)? my computer is about to get a new hard drive anyway and i'm gonna wipe it out and start from scratch.

just curious so that i can prevent it from happening again. thanks

If you are going to get a hard drive even better. Read the pinned threads in this forum as well as overhere. These are great tutorials and give you an indepth vision on what to do and especially NOT to do.

Perhaps we can have a look at your safety software and give you some advise for the future. Please post what you have and we will give you some sound advise.

This is a description of the malware detected on your computer:
Trojan.Obfus.Gen General Description:
Trojan.Obfus.Gen is designed to infiltrate your computer and open a conduit by which large amounts of adware and spyware can be piped to your system. Trojan.Obfus.Gen opens up a large security hole on your computer and is a very dangerous threat to the security of your personal and financial data. Trojan.Obfus.Gen is known to be associated with rogue anti-spyware applications.

If you are planning to move files from old drive to new drive, it would be best if possible to clean the old drive of malware so as not to transfer the infections.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

Please submit a list of security programs you now have. As the description above states this trojan is known to be associated with rogue programs.
