    I'm not sure where thismalware came from, but I did one of my frequent scans with adware and it picked up a number of entries called something like WindowsFavourites. It had a dll file called bridge.dll in the syste32 directory. I've run both adaware and hijack this and removed it and am going to run spybot as well, but was wondering if anyone had heard of it and where it usually comes from. Any info would be appreciated.

    I would advise u to post a HJT log just to make sure your system is clean of this infection. ;)
