Warning Balloon

Recommended Posts

Hello to all.

I just started receiving the "Warning Youave have a security problem" in the task bar which is bogus. I have not downloaded anything it quite a while. In addition to having to click the x to close the balloon, then sometime later on the IE browser randomly displays showing a scan to be run.

I seached in Google for this type of problem and came across this site.

I did a download of the "HijackThis" and have the log results below.

Than you for any assistance in getting this junk removed.
