    The only stuff I have on my notebook is AVG free.The notebook gets scanned automatically regularly and nothing was ever picked up.I had that clip showing up for many months now.At first,I though it was in the notebook but now I think it's maybe that when I go online(which is not so often)then there's something in my notebook that ask to that por. site to send me the clip...maybe I'm wrong?But the clip doesn't show up by itself.It goes to the download box and then the icon show up on my Desk top.

    What thread is locked?

    And a boot into safemode followed by scans with AV software is strongly recommended.

    Well...I go to the forum and the icon in front of my thread is yellow and at the other end of the line for my thread,nothing shows...who last answered the thread,how many replies,how many views...there's nothing.All is replaced by a dash.

    Ah. Your thread was moved into the Security and Anti-Virus Subforum. What your seeing is a redirect to the thread, basically a placeholder that links you to the real thread

    AVG Free doesn't scan for adware/spyware as good as the standalone malware scanners.

    I strongly recommend you follow my original post.

    Like Arki has recommended, try some dedicated antispyware/antimalware programs like SUPERAntispyware and Malwarebytes'Antimalware.
    You could also try online scanners like Eset's or Kaspersky's.
    Take to heart, the advice to run your installed virus scans from safe mode.
    You'll find download links for the programs mentioned in my signature.
    Cheers.
