It's highly unlikely that Columbia House would have given you this virus.

Here are a few tips:

1) Make sure you are using an antivirus program and that it is up to date

2) Make sure that your Windows is up to date (using liveupdate)

3) Make sure you are using Internet Explorer 7.0, not 6.0 or 5.0

4) It is also resommended to use a anti-spyware program such as Windows Defender, Spybot Search and destroy, Ad-aware, or Spyware Doctor

An iframe is a web page embedded into another web page. An example can be seen here:


Iframes can be in the form of advertisement (e.g. banners etc.), so my bet is that it's from some sort of rogue advertisement on that website, and that is the responsibility of whoever their advertisement supplier is.

I also found this, which explains a little, http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/iframe.shtml

Download this program:


Install it and then open up hijackthis. Press the button that says "scan and save log file". After a short scan it will open a notepad window. Copy and paste that file onto the forum and I'll take a look at it.

I fix computers for a living(actually its a side job). Dont start playing with that program though because you could mess something up, just post the log with it.
