I have Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector and Spyware & Malware Removal icons that began showing up on my desk top the other evening. After they showed up my home page keeps trying to change to http:softwarereferral.com/jump.php?wmid=6010mid=Mj60jd5lid=2. I get all sorts of popups. Does anyone know anything about these programs?

They are malware, and can be removed, I suggest you post a topic here:
http://www.spywarein...hp?showforum=18
and include a HiJackThis log and a brief description of the problem.
