Hello all, I am new here and I am having a bit of a problem. recently a trojan was found on my computer and a new tool bar was added to my internet explorer called security toolbar 7.1. I was able to download free spyware blocker and it removed the trojan and the security toolbar. Now, I have this irritating icon in my bottom right hand corner that pops up a balloon and says that i have spyware on my computer and if i download this certain program it will get rid of it. Of course, I know it's phony, but how do i get rid of the yellow traingle? I don't want to spend money on anything, Ijust want to get rid of it! Please help!!!!!

Thank you

Sounds like you still have some malware on your PC. Check this link and follow the instructions to post a HiJack this log in that forum. Someone will guide you from there but don't do anythign else to your PC until you hear from a HJT team member. You will need some patience since the team is voluntters and they try to work on logs on a firsy come first served basis.

If your using Win XP or 2000, please follow the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to remove the Smitfraud/Generic Zlob".

If the problem continues, please download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (compatible with Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista)
  • Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover.
  • During the installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch the program and select Check for Updates.
  • If prompted, click Download to receive the latest updates.
  • When completed, close the update window.
  • Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.
