A while back I turned on the computer one day to find that the background had turned blue with warning messages of spyware and began recieving numerous false popups about my computer being infected with spyware all directing me to the site "http://antispyspider.us/69".
Then the computer began to work more and more slowly and the "blue screen of death" or system error screen began shutting down my computer randomly. I hadn't really been paying attention but apparently all of my anti-spy and anti-virus software that had come with the computer had expired and I had recently been downloading an extensive amount of music from blogs on the internet, so I guess I'm not really suprised at this. Anyways, I did a bit of research and downloaded the Spybot Search and Destroy program which apparently removed a massive amount of stuff already, but the pop ups continue (however not quite as frequently.) I am embarassed to admit that I also blew thirty bucks on something called "SpyHunter" which did basically nothing and i was later told by Spybot was something known as a rogue spyware removal program. Anyways this is my first post and I'm really just trying to get into the right forum right now and in contact with someone that can help me, thanks. Also I am using windows XP.
