    Hi cjgolfer, Welcome to TSG !!
    What Operating System are you running??
    What exactly comes up?? an open folder or message??
    Is your antivirus up to date?
    If so run it.
    Go here and get Spybot:
    http://www.safer-networking.org/
    install and run the search for updates. Download all the updates and run the Check for problems
    Check all the red entries. Then remove them.

    Please go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
    and download 'Hijack This!'. Unzip, double-click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that,and copy its contents here.
    Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
