i have TrojanAdware.W32.Expdwnlder on my computer and need assistance in removing it. I have the red background screen and various spy programs haven't been able to remove the red screen and pop up and web pages that open on my computer. I ran spybot, ad aware, Norton and web root spy sweeper. I've read up on the virus a bit and it appears that the only way to remove this virus is using hijackthis. can someone please walk me through the process? thanks so much!
