    outwar spyware - please help

    Please help.
    I have an outwar spyware on my computer. Each time I turn my computer on, it comes up with a download box about downloading an OUTWAR ADDON GUIDE.EXE. It is majorly annoying hope someone can help. Here is my Hijackthis thingy:

    This one truly stumps me. Unless it's being called by another program, or is hidden in what looks like a legitimate file under another program's file group.. have you run the full scans on everything?

    Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked':

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Media Player] mediaplayer.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows Media Player] mediaplayer.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Media Player] mediaplayer.exe

    Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & navigate to & delete the following if found:


    Reboot normally.

    mediaplayer does not start with Windows, it must be started manually so this entry is a baddy.
