Spud this seems to be a nasty little bit of spyware that can be difficult to remove.

Firstly i would suggest running Ewido click here

Then try these if it still appears Spybot sd and Adaware
click here
click here

If these fail you,i would suggest running Hijackthis click here and posting the log click here here they will advise you step by step what needs to be removed.

thx skiddzy already run spybot and adaware tried Ewido it removed some spyware that niether of the other two caught ,but didn,t find "freedom hidden window" it seems to have gone anyway spybot must have got it.Fingers crossed that it doesn't come back.
