Well, I'm no expert, but I just tried to download a screen saver and got the same warning... have you recently downlaoded some cools screensaver(s). Alos, have you tried Adaware, Spy Bot, and Spy Sweeper? They should catch something like that I think.

Go to Go to http://www.downloads.../hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip to a permanent folder like c:HJT\HijackThis.exe, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please post the contents back here.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
I (or someone here) will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Help. My daughter keeps getting a popup stating she has the downloader.keenval.c trojan. It came back after a supposed successful removal using Spyhunter. Any thoughts? Thanks.
