i downloaded an .exe from the Internet. when i ran it nothing appeared on my screen. I then realized that the .exe was some sort of trap. i now get pop ups when i surf the Internet once in a while. sometimes when i go to a website like cnn.com or something the browser redirects me to http://www.netster.com. is this spyware or a virus or something else? how do i remove it? i ran zone alarm and search my entire hd. it found nothing. i also ran adaware (with current updates) and spybot search and destroy. it found some things and i deleted them but i still have the same problem. what can i do?
