    I have a computer that had viruses and spyware on it. It is now
    completely clean (using EZ Antivirus, Ad-Aware, and Spybot), but I am
    still getting a pop for Gain (wants to install a certificate.) How can I
    find out where this is coming from?

    That's what gator spyware is calling itself these days. When do you get this
    popup? On particular webpages? If so, it's because that webpage is coded to
    attempt to install gator spyware.

    After 2 or 3 more reboots, it was gone. Got me.
