i already have those program. when i say toolbars i do not mean spyware related. i mean for example i am in my bt yahoo software. i will try and type and the yahoo help box will come up.

avg just said i had a trojan/backdoor/worm or something and it wouldnt delete or heal so i clicked continue. it was c:\windows\system32\etzreze.exe

\etzreze is not what it was called but it was something simular but i forgot.

Kewl

What gets me though, is with protection, it shouldn't have gotten onto your computer in the first place...

Open your Antivirus, and check if theres an AutoOn button or something that'll continually search files coming in from the Internet.
I don't know if AVG has something like that, but on Norton, which I have, it tells you if somethings coming through thats a virus and asks should it be deleted.
