I keep getting a popup that says my computer has been infected with the virus worm.win32.netbooster
I have windows XP. I have run MCAfee as well as spybot search & destroy to no avail. My internet homepage has been changed to www.sys-cleaner.com. Task manager has been disabled. I am getting a windows security alert that "windows has detected an internet attack 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 download spyware remover for total protection."

PLEASE HELP!!

Run the following fix:

How to remove the Smitfraud / Generic Zlob / Quicknavigate / Virtual Maid

Then run a full system scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
