While downloading manga tentacle porn, I apparently did something weird. Heh. JUST KIDDING!
Windows XP professional
Desktop hijacked with a message that begins Warning Spyware has beeen (sic) detected on your pc.
Fake Windows Security Center popups. And a little yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it that says I am infected OR I am running slow, click here to fix the problem.
Task Manager has been disable by the administrator.
Cannot use restore.
What I have attempted.
CWShredder....comes up with the same 11 CW problems and assures me they are deleted but I can run it over and over again and it is still there.
MalwareBytes found a bunch of stuff and I have a log from that...also said it was fixed but noooo.
Avast doesn't seem to pick things up.
Spybot search and destroy same deal....finds the stuff, says it is cleaning it, but it never really goes away.
Even tried to FORMAT and reinstall windows and I couldn't format so I just tried to repair and STILL have it.
Have done everything I could restore my ability to use Taskmanager, all the copy and paste and manual reset and all that, but still cannot use it. Although I did look at running processes through some weird C: prompt thing, but couldn't see anything and couldn't do anything anyway.
So NONE of the tricks I know are working. Please give me some direction or direct me to a thread that explains removal procedures or something.
