    Hi there.
    Thank you for reading my post!
    My computer is infected with something that really sounds like the same things as the thread "Infection: TrojanDownloader.XS, PC-Antispyware, System Integrity Scan Wizard" on this forum by user eccentricy. I'm going to borrow his/her explanations # 1-4 of the symptoms so that you don't have to go hunting for the thread:

    "1. Pop-up messeage (in blue frame) as below
    Security System Protection Control Panel
    Possible spyware infection detected. You need to update PC-Antispyware protection to remove detected spyware from your computer. Click here for details....
    THREAT NAMEL TrojanDownloader.XS
    To remove detected threat please click here

    2. Pop-up messeage (in red frame) as below
    File:
    C:\WINDOWS\wml.exe
    Threat
    Abebot
    Possible Spyware infection has been detected on your computer by "Security System"
    To remove detected threat you need to update your PC-Antispyware protection.
    Click here to visit PC-Antispyware web site
    Update PC-Antispyware protection and remove detected threats.

    3. Pop-up messeage (in blue frame) as below
    System Integrity Scan Wizard
    Warning: Your computer may have critical errors in Windows registry and file system!
    The registry and file system errors lead to computer freezes, system crashes and slowdowns, corruption of files and document.
    Immediate system integrity scan and repair is strongly recommended.
    To scan your computer for drrors please click the 'Next' button below

    4. A yellow triangle notification icon with an exclamation mark in the system tray.
    When I click on it it lead me to the below site:
    //antispyware-reviews.biz/?wmid=4663&pwebmid=R3n1c2Bg8A "

    I noticed there was a downloaded "codec" file in my downloads w/firefox after my kids had been online, and I get the same issues. The yellow triangle in the system tray points to //antispyware-reviews.biz/?wmid=4663&pwebmid=R3n1c2Bg8A and says it's from antispyware-reviews.biz. I also am getting some additional popups from podshow.com.
    I have run multiple scans using Spybot Search and Destroy, LavaSoft2007, I've downloaded spyware blaster and used the Ewido online scan.
    I had alot more issues yesterday, like the task manager being locked out and the desktop dissapearing but those issues have been resolved with all of the scans, but I'm still left with the annoying popups and system tray thing.
    I tried looking for C:\WINDOWS\system32\tcbwladk.exe and C:\WINDOWS\system32\rifcditk.exe as was recommended for the other person infected with this issue, but my computer didn't have them. So, that's why I'm writing :) Thank you for helping!

    This is the HJT file.
