Please help!! I've never done this before so I hope everything goes ok. Out of the blue the other day, my work computer started messing up. The wallpaper has changed to red with yellow and white text. Telling me that I have been attacked by an unknown spyware. click here to download an antispyware program. I'm getting popups for antispyspider, my homepage has been changed to the antispyspider download page. little popups keep coming up that i'm infected with malware and spyware. windows security popups are coming up saying the same thing. it won't let me go to the taskmanager or config. it tells me the administrator had denied it, i am the administrator. i have run spybot search and destroy and the free version of avg. i've tried to start in safe mode and it won't. i have done a search for the antispyspider and nothing shows up on the computer except the popups. is this linked to spysheriff? it was on here when i ran the search and destroy and it fixed the problem. i don't know what to do next. please help.

Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!
