Hi I have a Windows Xp system. It is running REALLY slow and I think I have spyware. I do have Norton Internet Security, and it is up to date, but it is saying no files are infected. I did a scan on spyonthis.com and it says I have 100+ infected files..Please help me, I have no idea what to do.I share this computer with my 14 year old and he downloads tons of stuff, and I am freaking out!! Please help me, but I really don't know too much about these computers..
Thanks You in advance!!
Worm detected, but so new/confused, what to do?

Scroll down to the download section
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
