I am pretty sure that this similar topic has been posted before. But before I go working on a friend's computer, I thought I would throw this one out. Recently my friend's computer came up with this DANGER:SPYWARE add that has filled her desktop. It also disabled the Display properties. I have never seen this before. However, they did not have any security measures in place prior to this. I downloaded and installed the Microsoft AntiSpyware program and Norton Antivirus. So far nothing has been able to remove this.
If anyone has an easy suggestion on how to do remove this I would be greatly appreciative. If it is complex (but not as complex as just wiping out the hard drive and starting again--which she wants me to do), I can also give that a whirl!
