Hello,

I have a rather malignant virus/spyware that I cant get rid of. It was previously talked about in theis forum

http://www.geekstogo...ray-t14782.html

Basically, there is an icon (exclamation mark in yellow triangle) that pops up in the system tray, every so often it prompts a dialogue box saying "warning sypware found" or system error. There are also pop ups which come from searchem.net promoting various spyware.

I have run ad-adware, spywareblaster and spybot, as well as the latest version of Norton Antivirus. I tried running CW shredder. It finds one entry "CWS:Mupdate", but when I try to fix, the whole sytem crashes.

The computer appears to be running ok, but it is really annoying. Any help is very appreciated, thank you!

Here is my hijack this log. Thank you again
