    I accidently downloaded the damned Active X link or something and it installed a couple things on my computer. At first I was getting constant pop ups telling me I was potentially infected. Every time I started IE it would automatically send me to a supposed antivirus program site. I managed to get Registry mechanic and spybot installed and run. Thats problem is fixed or seems to be, but now I see a blue flashing question mark that turns into a red shield with a white X in it. This sends me to another website. I also keep getting a system alert from it.

    I'm going to include the hijack report. with follow up post.
