    Did a Spybot scan today and it showed up a "Borowwsoe2save" malware program, tried to delete it, says I need to run as admin blah blah blah, doing that now.

    Anyone know what the hell this thing is or what it could've done to my system? :neutral:

      What exactly does this mean though?

      Sounds like something similar i got recently, where ads popped up here and there on my browser. That was only a self-installed chrome plugin/addon though, this sounds worse as it infests itself into your program/common files folders and copies .exes/files.

      I'm not sure about the exact details, but i surely wouldn't let it stay there for long. The link above seems to have some good advice about removing it.
