if you truely think its a virus
then get AVG (Buy the disk! The complete disk! that way it cant be blocked or stopped or slowed to nothing and allowing others on your pc)
but
IMHO its Spyware
so i use Ad-aware
and Spybot search and destroy
so get those install and run your heart out

I was just about to suggest a similar course of action:

Virusscan
Spybot S&D
Ad-Aware
Virusscan
Restart computer

Do that and report back.

what he described does not sound like a virus to me
it sounds like spyware
but non-the-less search for it all!

as avast pretty good. it seems good to me.

i dont no no much about this spy stuff. little help.

nad my computer is getting slow. and i keep getting a box that pops up.

the title of the box is antivirus WARNING.

and it said attack detected. and i choss from attack now or continue unprotected. and i no better not to click some thing i never downloaded.

and i got something in my sttstem table that i cant delete and it is vista antivirus. and it shows a page and then a list of my infected files. pssss. BULL!! the list looks stupid. the files are dumb and pointless. any can relise they files are fakely made up so it was be something.

hightraffic adds cookie. thats not even a file name.

and i just had a bug on my computer but i squashed it with my hand.(fyi you didnt need to read that you just wasted your time. i win)

It's spyware, have you run any anti spyware programmes?

What is the name of this "virus" ?

I'll bet it's a Vundo related spyware
