Re: Picked up a virus or spy type app...
I'm sorry no-one has replied, but it may be obvious.
Have you got anti virus software installed?
If not, you are asking for it, but there are options.
Get spybot and ad-aware (no links just google it) and run them.
Let it kill everything. then do an online scan. (It wont kill anything, but it will tell you what you got)
If it comes up with anything, google it (or report it here)
