    There is a red circled slash that flashes in the lower right corner of my desktop. When I move the cursor over it it says Virus Alert! There is also a red square that says my computer is infected! Critical system error! etc... which is merely a fake alert and a goad to rip me off into buying the commercial version of SpywareQuake. It was installed by a Trojan, which automatically downloaded and installed it; I am led to believe. That's unusual since I already have the anti-malware program ewido.:eek:

    I've done scans a few times after with ewido anti-malware and Avast. I also used WinASO Easy Tweak and RegOptimizer. Cleaned out with CCleaner. I've updated my Ad-Aware SE Personal program and did a scan with that as well. Since I opened an .exe file that I shouldn't of (Idk what I was thinking, I was under some stress at the time:oops: ) in the beginning, the PC rebooted itself. I've been getting crashes after throwing the comp into standby mode to wake it.

    Last thing I can think of doing now is following the step-by-step instructions on how to remove it with the self-help guide at http//www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic47826.html but if I mess up then whato_O? Last resort would be for me to backup everything on a USB HD, format and clean out my HD on this PC, and reinstall WinXP SP2. That's too much trouble and time for me which I don't have to do. Bringing it to a GeekSquad or a Circuit City or where ever would cost me time andmoney as well! Any advice would be greatly appreciated from anyone with good in their hearts.
    The almighty lord himself will bring justice and punish these evil, manipulating, greedy and corrupted businesses that do their practices on the internet. :mad: I'll pray for them, and everyone else who has been tainted by the devil. They're going to pay dearly for the rest of their lives because they have sinned! :isay: The rightous and just people will always overcome the corrupted and wicked people of this world in the end. Mark my words and remember this!!
