HELLO AND PLEASE HELP!!! I TRIED TO DOWNLOAD A TV SHW FROM LIMEWIRE... I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER I AM USUALLY PRETTY SAFE BUT I GUESS I HAD MY MOMENT. ANYWAYS I DOWNLOADED AND FOLLOWED THERE INTRUCTIONS TO OPEN THIS FILE.. BUT WHAT I GOT WAS A PROGRAM THAT IS CALLED (INTERNET SPEED MONITOR). I REMOVED THE PROGRAM FROM MY ADD/REMOVE SOFTWARELIST BUT IT IS STILL WORKING. IT JUST POPS UP WHEN I AM CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET.. I BELIEVE IT IS ADWARE BUT I CANNOT REMOVE IT.

I USE CA SECURITY SUITE AS MY SPYWARE AND ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM.... IT PICKED IT UP AS SOON AS I DOWNLOADED THE FILE BUT IT WAS TO LATE... I CHOSE THE OPTION TO KILL WHEN CA SECURITY POP UP BUT I STILL HAD TO REMOVE.... BUT LIKE I SAY IT IS STILL COMING BACK.....I WOULD REALLY LOVE SOME HELP... I WOULD HATE TO WIPE MY HARD DRIVE!!!!!!!!! :)

Welcome to GTG.

Two things:

1. Please do NOT post in all caps like you just did. It's considered yelling when you use all caps online and it's also a bit harder to read.

2. I hope you learned your lesson. Otherwise, I'm sure you will just get reinfected again. Uninstall Limewire....

Please read this topic and post your HijackThis log here when ready.
