My roommate's friend was using my computer the other night, and when I turned it on yesterday morning, it was quite obviously infected with something. The desktop is bright blue and says,
YOU'RE IN DANGER!
YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE!
ALL YOU DO WITH COMPUTER IS STORED FOREVER IN YOUR HARD DISK. WHEN YOU VISIT SITES, SEND E-MAILS... ALL YOUR ACTIONS ARE LOGGED. AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE THEM WITH STANDARD TOOLS. YOUR DATA IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR FORENSICS. AND IN SOME CASES FOR YOUR BOSS, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR WIFE, YOUR CHILDREN.
Every site you or somebody or even something, like spyware, opened in your browsers, with all images, and all downloaded and maybe later removed movies or mp3 songs - RE STILL THERE and could broke your life!
It says exactly that, even with spelling and grammatical errors. There's also a bright yellow caution sign blinking in the taskbar, and it's always popping up with warnings. The one that's there now says,
System performance monitor: Warning
System performance slowed down by: 47%
Internet connection speed decreased by: 39%
Probably reason: Spyware applications/Adware popup windows

Some say other things naming specific trojans and/or worms my computer is supposedly infected with, and every time I open my internet browser the home page is some security warning designed to look like it's from Microsoft. It lists my IP address, browser, and system info. Popups that attempt to download spyware and malware removal programs constantly pop up from the internet. I have Avast! Antivirus and AVG AntiSpyware, as well as Windows Defender and Firewall. I have attached the highjackthis file that appeared after I ran DSS.
Thank you ahead of time for any help you can give me. I do appreciate it.
