Hello,

I have a Toshiba laptop runing Windows XP Home edition. My laptop seems to have some sort of virus/spyware on it. The background turned blue and has a rectangle box in the middle (with yellow) stating, "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware removal to clean your computer." It also starts running a Windows XP spyware remover (i believe that's what it is) and comes back that a redicolous amount of files are infected. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Thank you

Ryan

Among other things, you have the win32/FAKESCREEN.N virus. I had the same thing. Go to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/158403/xp-antivirus-2008-win32fakescreenn-and-other-virus-problems-cant-fully-remove-them/ and see the steps that Q7 told me to follow, not just the first one. There are a bunch of steps in the thread and it is time consuming but when your done your PC will be good as new. Q7 is the man!!! My PC couldn't be better now. GOOD LUCK!!!
