    I am so glad that I googled this trafficmp that was detected. What you have said now makes sense as to what has been happening on my computer today. This morn I ran the avg 7.5 and it detected 30 something tracking cookies. It put them in to the vault to which I have assumed means it is isolated and will no longer harm my computer. I am running it again tonight and it tells me that it was found again but as trafficmp2. Earlier in the night I allowed my kids to take the lap top to a superbowl party. They dropped the lap top and since we have been receiving the same warning of recovering from serious error. clicked on for more details and it said something about serious errors with microsoft windows. I had to cold boot to shut down.
    When it went back on it was okay for a bit and then displayed once again a serious error. I was upset and assumed it was the drop. reading your problem I now am convinced it is the virus and not the mishap. I too want to know how to fix the errorl.

    ginnybilly, you probably should post a new thread, since this one is already long in the tooth. Since you're suspecting malware, why don't you post a HJT log in the Security Forum.

    I agree and have split you off to a new thread of your own. Please reply here.

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
