i have been having problems with a possible keylogger on my computer so i have been running a lot of checks using Spybot S&D, norton and with Ad-Aware SE now i had no trouble with the first two programs i found some stuff and removed it nothing really happened but with adaware i ended up with three results MRU Lists (36 objects), Adware.Mediapipe (1 object) and Win32.Trojan.Downloader (4 objects) i thought nothing of them clicked next it quarantined and then deleted the found objects. Now the trouble begins after all this i restarted my computer and it decides that working properly isnt fun any more and once i had logged into my account it started putting up this weird alert over and over again about a symantec liveupdate telling the computer to shut it down in a strange way the moment i clicked ok it put up the error again so i restarted the computer in safe mode and did a system restore used the programs again and the same thing happened i repeated the process again with a different date and the same thing happened again i tried once more at a different date again and this time the error message didnt pop up but the computer was really slow and the internet didnt work so i restarted in safe mode did a system restore to two days ago and havent done anything since bar post this please help :whistling:
thanking you in advance
