Ok here is the problem and I am not sure if it is all connected to one virus or multiple.

Old computer running Windows XP

First of all I realized something was wrong so I installed Norton Internet Security 2008 did full scan and it found 10 issues which I cleaned them. In the task bar I still have the words Virus Alert! the clock is now military. I also have at times in the middle of the desktop a box that says something about needing to download Spyware or something and the computer icon that was on the desktop is no longer a computer it looks like a white piece of paper with box in the middle and the right hand corner is folded down.

I have done another scan with Norton after I turned the system restore off (my computer properties) and this time it found a virus called joke. I deleted it and restarted the computer but still have the above issues. I don't know what else to do and when I googled the Virus Alert in task bar found some info on your website with suggestions but is says every situation could be different. So here I am

Please help!!!!
