My first post =)

Just recently, I began to notice problems on my computer, and so I went to some forums and cleansed my computer with scans including Ad-Aware SE Personal, AVG 7.5, Panda online's thingamabob, etc. I removed a whole ton of malware on my computer.
However, I noticed that "Messenger Service" was continually popping up and telling me to go to blacklisted sites (clean32.com, cleanregpro.com, etc). I did a bit of searching and stopped the popups by disabling the Windows Messenger Service.
However, one thing that concerns me is that this messenger service is associated with svchost.exe - I have the feeling that file is infected, even though all of my full computer scans come out to be clean.

I'm going to provide quite a bit of information now, just to make sure.

Whew, that was a lot. Hopefully my svchost.exe file isn't corrupted or anything.
As a side note, anyone familiar with the game MapleStory? Cuz when I run that game it comes up with error 360. =S Seems like noone on any other forum knows this error xD


Anyways, thanks in advance for looking through this mass of text.
> I use Windows XP, only have Service Pack 1, have an outdated JRE, er...no firewall.
