Hi, johnson.

AdwCleaner was running from C:\Users\jacobi678\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\F5EYMW26\adwcleaner.exe rather than your desktop.  So if it is not there, it has been deleted by clearing Temp files.

Corrine,I should be all cleaned up now.And Thanks alot for your time.
 I was really glad to get rid of my 1st Trojan that I know of.
Spybot S&D can't be to bad a spyware,being malwarebits didn't acknowledge it.
I've been getting about 50 spam emails a day,wondering why so many.
Never evan heard of most of the names and sites.

You are very welcome.  I am happy I was able to help.

As to Spybot S&D detecting the trojan and Malwarebytes not seeing it, if each anti-malware application had the exact same detections, then there would be no need for multiple products.  Although there is overlap among many products, it depends upon the company getting samples, dissecting them and adding definitions.
