Worm.Win32.NetSky detected on your machine.
This virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mail and Active-x objects.
The worm has its own SMTP engine which means it gathers e-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself.
In worst cases this worm can allow attachers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data.
Viruses can damage your confidential data and work on your computer.
Continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous
System Affected: Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista, 7
Security risk (0-5): 5
Recommendations: It is necessary to perform a full system scan"
I close this window by pressing "x" instead of "ok," and in the task bar, there is this little bubble that appears periodically from an icon that is a white x with a red background. The message in the bubble says:
"Warning! Your computer is infected! Windows has detected spyware infection! It is recommended to use special anti-spyware tools to 'pervent' data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date anti-spyware for you. click here to protect your computer from spyware!"
Well I tried to download Malware and couldn't run it or anything (it was already previously on the system; however, there wasn't a picture in the icon, just a window), so I re-started my computer and the icon hasn't appeared in the task bar since. Whatever is doing this also changed my background, but mine is just a blue screen, and when I go to change it, the picture title is "critical warning" if that helps any.
Also I can't click any google links, and when I try to click anything other than a bubble I get random pop-up advertisements in place of the link I'm trying to click.
Update: Well I ran a scan using McAfee, and it said that 19 files were infected. It quarantined 18 of those 19. It said it would quarantine the other file after restart, so I restarted, but now my computer won't even log on. It shows my desktop, but then it logs me off.
