just recently I have been having some problems with spyware and what not and I have used Ad-aware to remove what it can, Norton to scan for viruses and Norton System Works to fix some system problems that were slowing my system down a lot. Everything is running fine now but when Iím working every 10-15min I see an icon appear in my system tray and then disappear again before I can make out what it is. I have looked up all the Processes running in the Task Manager but I can't find the culprit. I can never catch it I've even tried to screen shot it when I see it appear but I always miss it.

My question is where can I find a log of all the programs that have run on my computer and find out what it's done?

Please follow the procedures outlined here: Malware Removal Guide

You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, please ask for advice in the Malware Forum
