I think you downloaded a virus hun! Do a virus check. Your computer wouldn't tell you it's spyware unless you had a spyware programme.

good god man, you new to computers? i don't pay for software, you got shareaza or something p2p? just type spyware doctor and download it, if it's a virus type trend micro free on line virus scan into google, if you got dsl or cable or whateva, it should take a sec to install....

ad-awaree personal and spysweeper both work good and are both free. you can get them at download.com. i beliebe spysweeper is only a 30 day trial though. itll still work if you have a virus, for the time being anyways.
