I downloaded the intcodec when i was looking at a trailer for something because it said i needed it. Zone Alarm gave me the warnings but I ignored them because they do that for everything I install or download. But then it turned into SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR so i denied access but it didn't stop and it kept on installing. Almost immediately, i got all these pop ups saying that i am infected with spyware and "click here" to get rid of them. When i saw this i got rid of the message and scanned with zone alarm. It detected 3 spyware and i removed them. But every 15 minutes or so, the same pop up would return. It would also change my home page and has an icon on the task bar too! I was able to get rid of the thing that ruined my home page but it's not completely gone. I tried add/remove programs on the contral panel but it keeps saying i have to reboot first and after 2 reboots i still can't uninstall. I tried going under program files and deleting the INTcodec player but two of the things are still in the file. It says that is might be in use or it's not writable and i can't delete them. I went into Zone Alarm program control and put it under "kill" but the pop ups keep coming! Anyone know what else i can do? If i have to, i might have to reformat it and that's no fun... please help!
