A sure sign of spyware that is actively running. I forgot the screen name, but there is an active moderator here who has a link to go step by step in order try to solve this sort of an issue. You may want to poke around this board or do a global search if he doesn't come in here and reply. My best guess is that your computer isn't going to fry or have anything destructive done like a real virus would do, but it will be a big time nuisance and perhaps bandwidth eater, and really invade your privacy and interrupt you anytime it pleases.

Hi Omas,

Go to the top of any TSF Page and you will see a link Having problems and spyware and pop-ups? First Steps, just click on it and follow the instructions.

I would also suggest that you have "Instant email notification" for your thread once its posted in the HJT forum, so that you will receive notification as soon as a reply has been posted.

Good Luck with it.
