I was able to resolve most of the problems by running Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-aware 2007. I also loaded a k-9 filter program that has been very good to keep unwanted sites from opening and preventing attempts from the spyware infiltration. I even have manually tried to remove known virus files from my registry.
I have run multiple symantec scans both in regular and safe mode and still continue to have problems with a very Slow computer, system alerts that indicated that my system has deteted viruses and the following ad (probably virus) that comes up every couple of minutes.
"Windows has detected an internet attact attempt... Somebody's trying to infect your PC with spyware or harmful viruses. Run full system scan now to protect your PC from internet attacks, hijacking attempts and spyware! Click here to downlad spyware remover for total protection."
I do not click on it and have used the task manager to determine the file connection by right clicking the mouse and selecting go to process. The file name is csrss.exe which I have read is a needed file, but I have also read that it is commonly a virus file as well.
How can I remove this and remove all viruses from my computer and improve its overall performance?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
