The link above shows what exactly happens, but this isn't me in the video. I did a full system scan with AVG and found a 'Trojan Hourse', so i deleted it.

My question is did anyone have this problem before? Shall i install Norton Antivirus and do a full scan with that as well?

1. Free AVG ain't bad. I'd keep it.

2. Now back up that scan with a scan from Housecall.

3. Add Free AVG AntiSpwyare (eject what it finds).

4. Use another browser such as firefox, opera as much as you can to avoid IE/OE exploits.
