    Hi Vantzos,

    Yes, in agreement with Lamehand. Go post an HJT log (just not here).
    PCHell references some information. With so many variation's these day's, it may or may not be your target.

    Re: IE Helpers! ABOUT TICK.exe is spyware!

    "ABOYT TICK.exe" is finally spyware. It works in stealth mode with autoupdate capasity and it adds itself as IE helper , gaining special privileges and causing system instability! Thanks guys for your help! I have found until know approximately 90 serious infections in my system, but I am still standing!
    Best regards!
