I have been notified on Skype that I have the above spyware on my computer. Will adaware take care of it? If not what should I use?

How did Skype notify you regarding that?
You could try Adaware, but I would suggest SuperAntispyware
click here
download, update and run it.
(Untick the Yahoo Tool bar option if you don't want it)

are you sure you have not had a spam email?

what protection programs do you have on board and when did you last fully update them all and run full deep scans?

interestingly at this point in time a google search using the thread title and various variations from it only produced a link to this thread

have you maybe been spammed?

the link in the above click here takes you to a source of infection, identified by Nod 32 as a JS/trojandownloader.agent.nbq trojan.

boot into safe mode, clean your temp internet files and run several antispyware apps, SuperAntispyware is a good one
