I too had the Yel/Blu Warning box with Blue Background and 3 not five tabs under Display Properties
I'd been chucking all sorts of virus hunters at this bugger i.e. McAfee, found it couldn't delete it,
SpyBot found the usual trackin' cookies as did PestPatrol, Kasperky found it and said what/where it
was...NTRootkit-j C:windows\system32\sysrest.sys also deleted the 'fake box'
Well I can go into msconfig and toggle the sysrest.sys off giving me to a quasi usable computer but,
any dead time will cause the computer to reboot and I have to hit F8 to continue what I was doing;
obviously it's still in there hiding waiting to pounce. I looked at a couple of the other poor buggers
posts and the responders asked them to d/l certain malware eaters is this a remedy for my particular
strain of infection or is there somethin' else going on with mine ?
I know this is a bit wordy but I tried to cover it all
