I have picked up a hefty virus(es) and it's kicking my butt! Pop up windows telling me to download anti-spyware (Virus Ranger, Anti Spy Kit, WinSecure Anti Virus, Win PC Doctor, Win Spy Control, Anti Spy Kit). I have the little yellow "caution triangle" flashing in my system tray and a pop-up that tells me that I'm infected with "Trojan Spy.win32@mx".
I can't use Smitfraudfix because I'm running crappy Vista. So far, I've scanned with: Norton, Spybot, Adaware, Adwatch, SD Fix, AVG, Super Antispyware, Kill Box, Rogue Remover and just for kicks, I purchased Kaspersky Internet Security, but it won't let me install, because of some "Data Execution Prevention" (or something) and boots me out of the install.
I've been working on trying to get rid of this for 24 hours (since 8:25 p.m. on FRI night). It keeps trying to hijack my home page, but at least SpyBot is denying that (though it pops up to have me cancel the attempt with every internet window I open).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm completely beaten!
