So, yesterday I got a virus that is resulting in the following symptoms:
My desktop wallpaper is blue and says "Warning: Spyware threat has beeen detected on your PC" (Yes, "been" is mis-spelled as "beeen"). I am also getting pop-up windows with ads for spyware and a yellow triangle with an exclamation point on my tool bar pops up telling me that my computer is infected, but clicking it infects my computer with a fake anti-virus program. And my C drive is symbolized with a red "X".

I've done some virus checks and such and they deleted what they could, but the problem is obviously worse than what an anti-virus program can deal with.

the best user friendly program for those infections only runs on window 2000/xp and above



Details like your operating system and what security programs you have installed are critical in reccomending a fix

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
