Okay, here is my current situation. If there is a link I need to go to people post it here.

This whole mess started when I visited a "adult site" and stupidly enough downloaded what I thought was something to watch the videos and guess what it was...a virus...probably some spy ware im not to sure

Now what happens to my computer is this...it's reacts kinda slow, my internet browser doesn't open up enough so that I can use the Internet (im in safemode btw), there is this little icon located where my clock is on the bottom of the screen ( i don't know the name of it :thumbsup: )
my start menu is sometimes isn't clickable. And there is a pop-up on my desk top saying "warning! there is a virus on your computer! Buy antivirus2008 to fix the problem" something like that. I know it's a fake because the color of the little icon it comes from is a little bit faded from the real error sign.

I don't know what Im dealing with here so i've come for major help!

So far here is what i've done...
i've downloaded something called spybot seek and destroy ( i think that's what it's called) i've downloaded Avira Antivir Personal and am currently scanning my computer.

I've heard of something "Hijackthis" but wasn't sure what it is or where to get it.

I don't want to was like 200$+ on a professional or even 50$ on antivirus (i will however buy the software as a last resort if need be)

Im trying to solve this problem before my parents find out.

I've been infected about 3 days now.

Again....PLEASE HELP ME :flowers:
