    My first thought was Spyware and at the risk of sounding stale, make Google your friend.

    Have you tried deleting the contents of the C:\Windows\Temp folder?

    I would also run Ad-Aware and Spybot to clean up your machine. A free online Antivirus scan would also not go astray either.

        The word I used was contents of the Temp folder and NOT the folder itself.

            SA8D.exe is spyware:

            Check your AV and AS software is up to date!

                    With 185 infections, I would be sad as well

                    I hope you have up to date AV software installed now, and will scan regularly. Also, please take backups of your important data so if things get worse, you have a way out.

                    Glad its fixed
