I know I'm supposed to post a log, but read the paragraph and you'll see why I couldn't.

I recently searched google images, clicked on a picture...and got Spyware (I've gotten infected on another computer before so I know the signs). At first it just kept flashing messages from Dell saying I need to redo my security--which I would do--and then my Bluelight Internet would kick me off and I would be unable to sign on unless I restarted it.

Then I left the computer alone for a few days and started using my mom's computer (the one I infected and cleaned before and the one I'm working on now). I started up my computer and after the XP loading screen flashed up it took me to a blue screen where it said it was cleaning my C drive because it was dirty. It then took me to my sign in page, and I signed in. I scanned the computer using Trend Micro PCcillin 12 and it found nothing. The internet was working slowly and saying the page wouldn't display, so I gave up.

Yesterday I turned it on again, and the internet was working ok. I went to this page and started Cleanup and restarted. But cleanup must have made it worse because now the internet is acting up again and displaying popups saying I need to download Ultimate Windows Defender. I was suspicious so I never downloaded it. After I would click cancel on the first popup it would say "Do you exit setup?" (my first real clue it was spyware because they left out some words) I clicked cancel and it cut me off the internet. Now everytime I sign in to the internet it works for two seconds and then displays the two popups and logs me off, and I can't get back on until I turn it off and turn it on again.

So I was wondering...Can I just download the spyware scanners on the How to Do a Hijack this log to a CD on this computer and transport it to my infected computer due to Internet malfunction, or do I need to do something first?
