I'm Jon, and I have an infected PC, yadda yadda yadda. Please forgive me, but I am not as spyware savvy as many of you are, I'm sure. My computer just started getting a small white X in a circle in the tray, and a pop up window down there saying: Warning! Security Report. Your Computer is infected! It is recommended to start spyware cleaner tool. When I right click on it, it sends me to an antivirus page, and then does tab afetr tab of crap. I also am getting warnings on my normal browser pages as well, now. I am not clicking on any of them, of course, because it appears to be malware? I run a Windows XP OS. I am not sure if it is NT or not. I am in an office with six different computers on our network. It is wireless internet, with a server running cables to all of our computers. I use Internet Explorer, maybe version 7? I am not the most tech savvy out there, so forgive me if I am being too vague. I have Ad-Aware, Spy-Bot, and I believe we are running Symantec Antivirus, but I think I only have Endpoint protection. Perhaps it is installed on our server, then distributed in our small network? I also noticed that my task manager will not work, and my background photo has been disable on my desktop? Can anyone help me remove this nasty thing?
Thanks for any help-
