    Hello, i am new ... this is my first post actually:), but i need with the removal of a scan which i think may be a trogin. it calls itself "(MS) Av" (its short for microsoft antivirus) and it spams me with warnings evrynow and than and tries to download something from this url http://scanner.vav-x-scanner.com/27/?advid=5378 ... (i highly suggest u not clicking it and if you did and you have the same problem i am sorry) on my computer evry time i click the "Ok" button anywho ive tracked the problem down to this location C:\Program Files\PCHealthCenter or atleast i think thats where the brunt of the files are... i think i tried to delete it but one aplacation remaind and i cant delete it and so i was wondering how to delete this aplacation and how to search for the rest i think there is still more

    ummm also i am not sure if these events are connected but i keep on geting 2 desktop icon's when i click on them it brings me to a "Adult Content" site and if i try to delete them about a minute later i get a new one. i think they may be connected because it happened at the same time and i dont remember how or when but i remember seeing some of the "Adult Content" Icons in a folder with the Microsoft AV applications
