Given what this says, I dont thing it happened by selecting that option

Using Catalog Files

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Catalog files specify that a given set of files belongs to the same logical group of files. When more than one distribution unit is required to distribute a component using Internet Component Download, a catalog file can be used to create an association of the required distribution units.

A catalog file contains a list of files and a digest of those files. A digest is a number generated by an algorithm to uniquely identify a given file, like a fingerprint. The digest is used for security/validation purposes.

Catalog files are used to avoid multiple trust dialog boxes when users download software components from the Internet. Trust dialog boxes are modal security warnings that prompt users before software is installed on their computers. The trust dialog box identifies the distributor of the software component and indicates whether the publisher's authenticity has been verified. There is a check box on the trust dialog box that enables users to "Always trust content" from the publisher.

Catalog files are supported by the Internet Component Download service provided by Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and later. Users with earlier versions of Internet Explorer can also download distribution units that contain catalog files. Their browsers ignore the catalog files and display a trust dialog box for each distribution unit in the software distribution as if no catalog file were present.

The main distribution unitwhich contains the catalog fileand the catalog file itself must have valid digital signatures to avoid multiple trust dialog boxes.

I doubt it but you can check with this to make sure

Regular Spyware Maintenance

Perform this below:

Follow these instructions carefully

Download ALL 10 programs and update if needed.

Ad Aware SE Personal Free

Ad-aware Messenger Service Plugin

Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plugin

Spybot Search and Destroy Free

Windows Defender 2 Beta

HijackThis

Ewido

CCleaner

Cleanup!

Follow these steps

Delete the prefetch folder C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch, this folder will come back on next reboot.

Go to Add/Remove programs and remove any offending programs such was weatherbug, search assistants, etc.

Delete all cookies and temporary internet files in the control panel, Internet Options.

Go to Start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, disable everything except your antivirus, Firewall, click apply, don¡¦t reboot yet.

Download Msconfig Cleanup below

Msconfig Cleanup

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit". Make sure your antivirus and firewall are not checked. If you delete your antivirus and firewall entries, you will need to reinstall them so be sure to check them.

Now run each Spy ware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

Then run CCleaner. Make sure you run the Cleaner section of Windows and Applications and then the Registry Cleaner. Make a backup if you wish while running the Registry cleaner when it asks you.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode.

Then run HiJackthis!

Save the log, copy and paste the log on www.techist.com
Do not attach the log, copy and paste always. This will make things go much faster.
