Dear all,

I've been bothered by this for few days and i cant carry on with my
work now due to this. I'm extremely annoyed. please help.

It all started by i downloaded an intcodec from a website. Then,
everytime i opened my browser, a page something like
"www.securitypage.com" popped out asking me to clear some
viruses/malware. Then, i downloaded ewigo anti-spyware and SmitfraudFix
(by S!Ri). I followed the instrcutions and somehow successfully removed
the spyware using ewigo and Smitfraudix.

Now, one more thing happened which i think should be related to the
intcodec spyware. Everytime i log on to my Windows (XP SP2), it seems
like "----------------" is being pressed automatically. The
"--------------" will appear whenever there's a cursor on my IE, Excel,
VB6, word and basically all applications which can accept keyboard
typing. This symptom is really annoying that i cant even do anything
for my work now. I tried top restore my system to the earlier system
point but the System Restore didnt work and even make the symptom more
severe.

Can a kind soul out that do me a favour by showing me way to solve
this?

THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!

Albert Leng
