I currently run Trend Micro PCCillin. I have been getting a lot of pop-up messages when I am on the internet indicating Trend Micro is blocking a site. Some of these messages include, but aren't limited to the following:

I also have pop-up windows appear indicating my computer is infected and that I need to click on the "OK" button to fix the problem (which I never do). I have read through the forums and have downloaded several tools to try to fix the problem, but don't feel comfortable enough to do anything without some additional guidance from someone with more experience with this. I am assuming I am infected with spyware and woud like some direction/advice. Thanks in advance for your responses!

You have a Vundo infection.

You should also follow up the instructions below to completely clean your computer of malware.

I followed the instructions for removing Vundo and it worked :thumbsup: !! My computer seems to be functioning better (and much faster...both on the internet and for apps offline!). With the problem fixed (at least for now), is it still beneficial to run HJT and post a log online? Thanks again for your help, this forum is a great resource with the knowledge base provided to us less-tech guys!

Did you run all the programs I linked to?

Yes, with Vundo is a good idea to post a Hijack This log. If you post, be sure to post in the Hijack This Forum.

Yes, I ran the other items you linked me to. I was amazed at how many more files were found that Trend Micro didn't fix. I didn't realize different anti-virus packages can find some things and skip others, I just thought they all found everything (apparently a bad assumption). I will run HJT and post the log along with the probems I was experiencing, what I did, and how it worked. Thanks again for your help!!

That's why it's a good idea to run multiple spyware applications, and the occasional online virus scan.
No program is perfect, so what one misses, hopefully the other will catch.
