Download Ad-aware SE from http://www.download.com/3001-8022_4-10319876.html then Spybot S&D from http://spybot.info/en/download/index.html
Update the programs before scanning full system scan
Let us know how it goes
My win xp home pc with sp2 has apparently been infected. I just installed Norton 2006 and noticed that I get random window popups to inappropriate site. These popups are the same size as my browser window and are directly on top of the window I'm using.
I also occassionally get the "Black Worm" infection warning.
Norton said I had Adware.wintaskad and Adware.winupdates problems and it wouldn't remove them.
While scanning with Ad-Aware, I got a norton warning about adstatservx trying to do some funny stuff.
I ran the online scans by panda and bitdefender. They did not remove anything but I deleted the files they identified in the log report.
Norton no long reports the spyware, but the popups are still occuring.
What do I do next? I need to do my taxes and I'm worried about doing it with this problem on my pc.
