Hi,

I have windows ME on my machine and have recently been hit with PS Guard. I have tried following the steps on this site to rectify the problem but the PS Guard stil persists to remain on my computer.

My icons are very large on the desktop and have a red background with a black box in the middle saying "Danger Spyware".

I am unsure of what to do next.

Any assistance??

Below is a copy of my HijackThis Log, hope this is all the information you require,

Thanks in advance,
