Today I had the exact same problem as mooml did, I had the spyaxe and infected computer alerts and all that good crap. I got everything cleaned up so far, but I cannot seem to get rid of two processes: nvctrl.exe and mssearchnet.exe, whenever I kill them they start back up, and I've ran quite a few anti-spyware programs.

hi,

a friend of mine had the same problem, i ran two online scans

http://www.trendmicro.com/housecall
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan

then i ran all these programs in this order although it probably dont matter

spybot search and destroy (free)
ad-aware se personal (free)
ewido anti-malware (free trail)

then download hijackthis and save it to C:\Program Files\HijackThis (you will have to create the HijackThis folder and put the file in to the folder). run hijackthis and post the log in here
