Hi, I've just joined the forum and would appreciate some help. I'm running Windows XP I don't have anti-virus software installed (tends to slow down performance I find) but do have spybot. Yesterday evening my computer issued a Windows XP warning and when rebooting my Screensaver had changed to white background with a warning message stating I had been infected with Spyware Win32 Adware. I then had problems with things like Task Manger launching - I was getting a message saying denied access by Administrator, Spybot wouldn't launch despite downloading a new version either. I was unable to download any Anti-Virus software as following the inital Run instruction before completion the process would stop - Windows One Care gave an error message of OO19-80070005.
Today, I keep getting a Windows Installer message for Panostandalone - which I believe is for HP Photosmart software - I have uninstalled this software but I am still getting a Windows Installer message saying it is trying to download it - this is preventing me from completing a download of any Anti-Virus software in other to attempt to quarantine the Win32 virus.
I have completed a Hijack scan if this helps - can someone assist with advice?
