I have NO idea. But I would try a search on Google. Just type in the word "malware", and hopefully you find what you need!

I'm downloading AOL Spyware Protection. It worked pretty well when I had AOL, so I'm going to use it. Pray that I get all of this Malware gone!
EDIT: I tried and read all of the stuff given, (Thanks! for the Help!) And None of this stuff will ACTUALLY REMOVE the Malware....UGH I hate not being a computer nerd...Anybody know ANY FREE Malware programs, that will actuallly delete the Malware and not just scan for it?????

Look up Free maleware remover download and see what that does. If you put free sometimes you will find something useful

I did a system restore back to like the 24th, and hopefully it fixed it, because I am having no problems now. I just wont visit any websites that I had never visited before again!

Ad Aware is a free malware removal tool, as is Spybot Search & Destroy.

Ad Aware is available at http://www.lavasoft.com.

Do a search on ZDNet or CNET for Spybot - both are very good at removing all the spyware that's out there and accumulates no matter how safe you try to surf.

The Personal SE version of Ad Aware is free - we even use that one at our office

Oh, Ok! I got the Spy Bot thing though. It said I have no threats at this time! yay :D

I use them both. Ad Aware seems to catch more than Spy Bot. Make sure you click on the Immunize button in Spy Bot and let it run to block malware.

I just had to use these tools. I remembered a thread about this stuff and did a search and found this thread. Thank you all for the replies before as they have helped me now. :D :) I can always count on PT to help.
