Recently I was on the internet and a few pop-up windows for advertising came up. Shortly after my desktop was changed to a blue screen with a text box in the center reading "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer. Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer." Also, the screen saver is now bugs eating the computer screen. I am no longer able to change either of these since the tabs are missing in properties. An unidentified warning shows up at random times talking about a virus from an unknown virus protection program I did not download. I have AVG, but the program is only detecting cookies. I read a former post on here with a similar problem, however, I have none of the files listed the same. Any suggestions?!?

Update XP for all critical updates, if not already done.

Download/install Spybot S&D, update it, run it.

Download/install SUPERAntispyware, update it, run it.

See if problems go away, advise us either way :thumbsup:.

Dear Louis,
Thank you very much for your recommendations. The two programs found a total of 46 problems. Now my computer is back to normal. I cannot thank you enough. I looked for hours to try to find programs that would be as effective as your advice.

Thanks,
Luke

The post below details my problem exactly. I purchased McAfee to remove the spyware but I am sure if it did. I am still having problems with this. Can someone help me please. I have tried registry editing (probably not all the way, since I was in a hurry this morning). Please I want this problem solved.
Would it help it if I knew the name of the spyware? I think it is backweb. I keep having this file in my temp folders Iadhide5.dlls (?)

I am also in the same boat. I have tried Superspyware, Spybot search and destroy, and others mentioned on this site. I have also used Smitfraud, Vundofix, and Combofix, as well as the MacAfee virus scan that was already installed. I really don't know what else to try.
