It has also installed two red x's in the lower right toolbar that keep prompting me to use a spyware scan to remove a trojandownloader:win32/fakenit. I have Windows live Onecare installed and ran a tune up and spyware scan and it says it has found the trojan and quarantined it,but it still has the big red your system is infected sign as well as the two red x's that keep prompting me.What should I do?
