Every time I use the browser or Windows explorer, the address bar or path drops down repeatedly, very fast, and you can't click on anything, while it's doing it.

I have an updated version of McAfee, but it doesn'tseem to clear it up.

Has anyone see this?

McAfee is a useless program. I would use superantispyware.com. It clears up anything that would be there. And its free!

You might also want to make sure that you have all your windows updates.

OK, I found it, it's a new trojan. I had to use 4 different spyware trials to find one that could see this thing! I used Spyware Doctor. CounterSpy did not work, or McAfee.

Now, it's cleaned up.

Hi KATHLEENW, and welcome to BC.

One of the things that concerns me in situations like this is that there are some free scans that will actually plant something so that they can claim that they have found something, it's all part of the sales gimmick. I had to remove a mild trojan from a friends computer because she did the same thing as I described. If you are unsure of what to scan with in the future please don't hesitate to ask anyone here for advice.

For worms and trojans I personally like Asquared.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I second the SuperAntiSpyware recommendation. Spyware Doctor is junk, IMO.
