Hi.

I've had my computer for years--going on three now I believe. I've never had any problems with it whatsoever, and if I had I managed to take care of it all by myself. I would consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to computers and whatnot, and usually I can take care of a lot of problems without help.

..but I need help.

I can't even fathom of what happened to my poor computer. One day I was playing a game that I've always played online (Naruto-Arena, incase it matters) and then BAM!, DriveCleaner starts downloading SOMETHING. I'm all like "omgwtf?" so I start closing stuff. It doesn't stop. I finally decide to hard shut-off my computer to end the download.

Phew, I'm safe.

Yeah, right.

I have so many trojans.. spyware.. adware.. I can't even fathom all the stuff on my computer. I downloaded a few problems to help; one was SpyNoMore (which, sadly, only really Scans my computer and doesn't fix it) which picked up 37 threats (I got it down to 30 now); another problem said I had 1334 infected files. O_O

I downloaded VundoFix and that BeGone thing, but it doesn't appear to be helping because I still have a ton of crap on my computer.

Help? /cry

Well, the SUPERAntiSpyware seems to have done the trick, but I really don't know. My computer just seems different, like it has become a tad slower or something. I don't have any more annoying pop-ups, but I wasn't really concerned about that, just the trojans/worms my computer supposedly had/has.

I probably would feel better posting a Hijackthis log, just to make sure.
