I have a friend who clicked on some TinyURL link, unknowingly, and entered an adult page littered with pop up ads. He shuts off the tower immediately, and reboots into normal mode. A window immediately came up saying there was a virus on the system, and every time he's on his LAN in normal mode, advertisements and SpySherrif pop up and bomb his CPU. We've tried emptying the temp folder and running Adaware, Spybot, and Norton. Norton apparently knew there was a virus, but couldnt find it after many scans. So now he's in safe mode and got a HijackThis report.
