having abit of trouble with something on my laptop. as soon as I log into windows vista i am greeted with a window acting as if it is scanning my computer. The software calls itself antispy software. I can get round it by going through task manager and cancelling it that way, but i want rid of it.

Scanned the computer with Malware Bytes and found one infected file. Deleted it and restarted the computer but its still there.

Tried using Hijack This but it says it cant have access to the hosts file? Getting to a point now where i have no clue what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
