Yesterday I noticed a flashing icon in my task bar at the bottom right-hand corner advertising some kind of "Free product". Actually, what it said I think was "Click here to save more". Of course I didn't click it but I checked the Task Manager for anything unusual. It had 48 running active processes like usual and I didn't really find any unusual processes.

I know that this is stupid but I don't really have any protection on this computer and don't have money to buy one. Is there any free ones? Right now I'm about to scan my computer after I download and install an ad-aware SE. I think that's what its called.

I checked a hijackthis log but didn't find anything, but I'll post one here i n case I missed something.

I didn't find any results for igfxtray.exe (O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IgfxTray] C:\WINDOWS\system32\igfxtray.exe). What is the best thing to do. Remove it?

Thanks for any help :)

AVG is free.
Spybot S&D is free.

igfxtray.exe is for your integrated graphics controller on you Intel motherboard.
