I was having the exact same problem on my computer. I followed the steps given here and everything was fixed except for one thing. There is a small red circular icon in my systray which, when you hover over it with the mouse says "Your computer is infected!" When right clicked, it says the same thing in bold in a text bubble, with "click here to protect your computer from the spyware / virus threat" underneath. I am wary of left clicking it, I'd rather just get rid of it. I'm no fool, I know this icon is actually a product of the spyware and not a method of fixing it. Any ideas on how I can finally rid myself of this thing? Thanks in advance!

Oh, and here's a hijackthis log, just incase it's needed:

Hi RuinerXL

Welcome to TSG! :)

I have split your post off into your own thread. In the future if you have a Question/Problem please start a "New Thread". It get's too confusing trying to address two different people's problem in the same thread and you may get overlooked.

Please continue in this thread.

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=explorer.exe, msmsgs.exe

O3 - Toolbar: Norton AntiVirus - {42CDD1BF-3FFB-4238-8AD1-7859DF00B1D6} - C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\NavShExt.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RegSvr32] C:\WINDOWS\System32\msmsgs.exe



* Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan and the ewido scan

My apologies, I did not realize that my post was split off into another thread so I made another one. I am at work right now, but I will attempt your instructions once I am at my home computer again. Thanks!
