I have deleted documents tht have shown up relating to the above after searching for them. Spybot tells me that the trojan has been removed. However the ad is still on my desk top. Please tell me how to remove!

Thank you!

Have you tried removing it manually? (Shift+Delete)

Sounds silly, but it works sometimes.

Hi there they are rouge programs http://www.siteadvis...ostid/?p=778639

However the ad is still on my desk top.

Because of this I suggest you head over to the malware forums. Read this thread first. Following what is outlined there you will get rid of at least the majority of your malware problems. If the problem still persists post a Hijack this log HERE for the experts to analyze. If it has been 3 days and you haven't received help, post in the waiting room and someone will get to you.
