Last night, when I turned my computer on, there was a small dialog box in the taskbar saying "Windows has detected spyware infection!" I installed Lavasoft Adaware, and it seemed to go away, but then it came back so then I installed Spybot-Search and Destroy, and that found different items, by the name of Spy Sheriff, and they seemed to go away, but the message in the taskbar didn't. So I ran the scan again and the same items came up! They just won't delete, and my computer is having frequent "Dumps of physical memory, so I can only get 20 minutes of time before it turns off. What should I do? Please help! :tazz:

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
