I am running a PC with Windows XP .
Recently started getting blue screen with message that my computer is infected and I should go to their site and purchase their software.
I am also getting a bubble from an icon in my tray that pops up every few minutes with one of several messages: your computer is under attack, Your computer is running slow, etc. All of which end up at the web site selling repair software. I also have a floating box in the upper left of the screen that says I am running low on memory and a few other things. When it appears every few minutes it means that the icon bubble will be comming up.
I have and run AVS, Spy Bot and Ad Aware. SpyBot found several problems and fixed them all except this one. AVS did not find this one. I downloaded SmitFraudFix but could not get it to show up on the screen in Safe Mode. I then ran it in regular mode and it killed the blue screen but the floating box and the icon remain as constant nags.
I have tried several times to get the SmitfraudFix program to run in Safe Mode but have had no luck so far.
If anyone has any suggestions I will appreciate them. Dave
