Whenever i turn on the computer i get a system alert icon on my tool bar that says: "System has detected a number of active spyware applications that may impact the performance of your computer"
No matter what i do it wont get rid of it and if i click on it it tells me to get Antivermin. I tried getting and running Antivermin but it just comes up and freezes, thus the system alert icon remains.

Any advice to help me oblige my system alerts so it'll go away?

Hi Trouix

Antivermin is a rogue programme that will more than likely infect you even further. I suggest you follow these instructions. Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer.
  • Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there.
  • Make sure you close down EVERY open window and close ALL browser windows. The only thing that should be open is the HijackThis program.
  • Run a scan and save the log file.
  • Copy the text file (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste it (Ctrl+V) in a new thread in the HJT Forum (do not attach it or post it here).
  • Do not fix any entries in HijackThis since they may be harmless.
  • Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

We'll then have a look and provide instructions to clean your system, if required. Please note that the HJT forum is constantly busy, so I would ask that you be patient while waiting for a reply.
