Here are the results of all the scans that you requested. The virus scan has confirmed my suspicion that I had been infected. Some information on how to fix all the problems would be appreciated.

Thanks.:)

Doesnt seem I have problems any more - I still have the shortcuts to spyware strike but they are pointing to non existent files so I shall delete them now?

In all It seems like everything is running swimmingly so thanks :p

Though any problems I will be sure to stop by again. Thanks again :)
