UG gave me a virus...

I had nothing open but AIM and UG, surfing the forums, and all of a sudden my computer went haywire with popups, spyware ads, and my computer making an alarm noise because it detected a trojan. It was located in temporary internet files, meaning it was most likely from here.


...





And all this time I thought you were my comrades... Who's doing was this?

What file was flagged as a trojan? BTW- A virus and a trojan are two completely different animals.

I don't exactly know. The trojan has now taken over windows security, leading me to an html ripoff of the control panel, OR my avast! page if I click the icons. This is a tricky bastard... It's also spiced up with a lot of the "download some anti-spyware, you simpleton!" sh!t.

EDIT: I broke through the foliage of popups and retrieved this file, identified as malware.

popularscreensavers is a pretty common one.
Delete it, if you can't, reboot in safe mode and then delete it and scan your computer.
Just because your AV found it while you only have UG open, doesn't mean that's when it got there.

+1 Some viruses/trojans/spyware take some time to develop before they become something that AV software defines a "threat". Not usually the case, but it does happen.
