    Hi, I was trying to run SpySweeper, and it was running extremely slowly. I went into Task Manager to chech what was running, and there was a process there that I didn't recognize that was using 70 percent of CPU power. I killed it, but another popped up instead. This happened again and again. One of these was zjkr5h.exe and another was roj12unt.exe. I looked them up online, and It looked like it was a Trojan Downloader. However, neither Spy Sweeper or Norton was able to find it. I just updated Norton last night. Can anyone help me?

    Once you've done everything Akito suggested, please download Hijack This and post a scan log for the experts to look at.

    Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).

    Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.

    Thank you all very much for your help. I downloaded AdAware, and that seems to have done the trick. You've all been very helpful.
