Okay, first of all - Hey everyone :tazz:

Please help - I am actually desperate now! I have just had my computer repaired, and already - it's gone wrong. I had AVG pop up and tell me I had a trojan dial up - I think I have got rid of this but anyway, the problem started when i got filost.com pop ups. Following the advice on the forums (very helpful by the way!) i downloaded hijack this....and using information from posts from people with similar problems, managed to get rid of these darn pop ups. Anyway, after a reboot - my taskbar and start menu have reverted to a grey theme? I have tried everything and need to know whether this is spyware? malware? a virus? Please, I am actually desperate, it's so annoying after just having it repaired!

Any help would be SO much appriciated,

Emma
