Hello. Please help me. I don't know too much about computers, but I try to keep mine running well. I've downloaded three anti-spyware programs (ad-aware SE, spybot search and destroy and a2). I run them regularly and do online scans and other anti-virus scans. Mostly, I get a bunch of spyware listed with Spybot, which deletes it all (though the same ones reoccur). I use a2 and it says I'm doing fine, but when I use it's HiJackFree function, it lists various malicious programs that are connected to good programs (if you're familiar with A Squared HiJackFree's rating system, what I'm saying is I get a good many 'yellow' programs listed, which, when I click 'view details' tell me that there are malicious programs that 'require attention', that were not taken-off by the a-squared scan). Some of these things are seriously malicious trojans (like PROXY-X), but I have no idea how to get them off with my computer.
1.Are these threats as serious as a-squared says they are? --because they are connected to 'good' programs!
2. If they are as bad as it says, is there a way that I could get them off of my computer manually?
3. If I can, can you tell me how, even walk me thru it? (remember: I don't know too much about computers!)
4. If I can't with my limited knowledge, what else can I do?
Thanks for considering my questions---please help me!
