How can I remove spyfalcon completely from my system?  I also have a blinking yellow yield sign and a green wheelchair icon.  Is there a simple solution, or will I need to fork over $100 bucks to DELL to get it fixed?  This is my first time using this service... hope someone can help.

    Also used this if problem persist.

    Download roguescanfix_setup.
    Doubleclick roguescanfix_setup to install it.

    After the installation, you will be prompted if you would like to run roguescanfix now. Click "YES" to start the tool.

    Note: This tool needs internet connection because it downloads an additional file to let the tool work properly.
    If your firewall gives an alert, allow it instead of blocking it.
    In case you still get the message BFU.exe is not present, download from here.
    Unzip it and place BFU.exe in the c:\program files\roguescanfix-folder. Then doubleclick Roguescanfix.bat again.

    The tool will uninstall some programs and delete related files and registry keys.
    When some files won't get deleted, it will ask you to reboot your system to delete the files after reboot.
    Please make sure the uninstall of the programs are finished before you click Yes to reboot.

    A textfile will open. Place the contents of that file in your next reply, along with a new Hijackthis logfile.
    (The textfile can also be found at c:\program files\roguescanfix\task.txt)
