I just got hit by a very nasty adware/virus that has written itself onto lots of different parts of my computer. I'm going to have to wipe everything and re-do windows to get rid of it. The original file was called 'loader.exe'.
   
A website infected me with this upon visiting, it had one of those "Ok/Cancel" popups and Cancel just made it go nuts. Ctrl/Alt/Del - when I tried to end-task on firefox, the firefox was 'running away from my mouse'. :\
