Earlier today my computer began to act strangely. Shortcuts linking to such programs as "Micro Antivirus 2009", "QUALITY PORN", "BEST ZOO PORN", etc. began to appear on my desktop. Also I have been receiving fake Anti-Virus errors, trying to lead me to purchasing Anti-Virus products, amongst other products. Then it would go through a fake reboot and send you back to the desktop. i tried spyware doctor which supposedly deleted it but i still get the fake errors.

The best defense against this type of malware and others is using Firefox browser with NoScript addon. Firefox also has the best popup blocker built into it.

You can remove the chance of reinstalling the malware by deleting all restore points on your computer.
It is also recommended that you delete temporary files, cookies, etc. The easiest and fastest way to clean your computer is using a program such as the free Ccleaner.

It would also be a good idea to run another scan with MalwareBytes after updating the program.
