my computer recently went haywire and all of these are on my computer now:
-a pop-up saying that the trojan.w32.looksky virus is trying to invade my system
-ultimate cleaner 2007 keeps on resetting my homepage and sending pop-ups about removing spyware, and
-error cleaner/privacy protector/spyware and malware protection keep on reinstalling themselves on my desktop and internet favorites.

i don't know what happened to make all of these start infecting my system. can anyone tell me how to get rid of them? thank you :)

Follow up with scans using the two programs below. Please let us know the results.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
