Don't know anything about this kind of stuff, just know my comp is acting weird and noticed new files..... Have ran Ad-Aware still didnt help. Anyway, how do I know if there's something on my comp that shouldn't be? Any answers given in dummy form would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Angelwings609,

You can start with an online virusscan like:
http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virusscan.aspx
Even run this if you allready have a virusscanner on your computer as some virusses disable yours.

Also, use this tool and post the logfile to identify what is running on your computer (don't remove anything, most things are needed to run windows)
http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

Greetings,

It's perfectly safe, but you may not need it at all.

That's a version of the Coolweb Bug, that's why I thought it would also get fixed by CWS...
I don't get it... have you updated before running it?

If you did, get rid of these lines:
