    Hi, Im running Windows XP, on a Gateway 600YGR laptop.

    I too had the infamous Spyware Protect 2009. I looked up the files/programs that may have been causing the infections from another site and deleted just one ".exe" file (I think it was sysguard.exe file under C:Windows) using HJT.

    The pop-ups from my task bar disappeared and so did the re-direction to SpywareProtect2009 websites and popups.

    BUT after a reboot, i recieved a message from my task bar saying my firewall was down, AVG anti-virus email scanner down and i was no longer able to connect to my wireless network, or access the internet in general even when directly connecting to my modem. I recieve "Insufficient systen resources exist to complete the requested service" quite often.

    The laptops performance became slower in general with frequent freezes.

    It was a crucial hit... from myself. Is there anything i can do?

    Much appreciated.
