Had this on my sons compurter. I did some poking around in task manager before it was disabled and found the wallpaper file and deleted it and found the blue screen and restart was a deseptive screensaver file and that infact the computer was not actualy restarting. Like a dummy I started deleting the strange files that would show up in the sys 32 file,but every time I thought I fixed the problems and would restart it would come back. Relizing I was no virus guru I ended up totaly reformating the hard drive and installing a fresh copy of windows and all is fine there. Then to my horror, I clicked on an MP3 download link and it showed up on mine. As with all the other cases, the desktop showed the antivirus warning, and the popup to download XP 2008, there was no way to just close the popup(no red X). with out clicking on the popup I went to system restore and activated it. It worked and I have seen no trace of the problem. A virus scan showed nothing. But a Spyware scan reviled " C:\Documents and Settings\Charles Desmond\Local Settings\Temp\.tt25.tmp.vbs" (fake screen) trojan. Should I delete it with my antispyware or what???. At this time I have done nothing more then the scan.
