My computer has been acting slower than usual, and I have been getting a lot of popups stating that if I continue, the information I enter into the computer is not protected. Also, my wallpaper has been automatically changed to a black screen with a text box stating, "WARNING, SPYWARE HAS BEEN DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER". I run antivirus scans frequently (they say no infection present), and run spybot and adaware scans several times a day (adaware usually finds 18-20 things and they are usually tracking cookies, and spybot keeps finding "Altnet".) I choose to fix the problems, but within minutes if I do another scan, they all come back. Can you please help? :thumbsup:

Run both Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy from safe mode, updating each program before you scan and setting both to fix what they find.

After that, I suggest you post a “HijackThis” log for expert assistance with your problem.

Read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions run a log, and post it in the appropriate HJT forum, at this link.

Do not as yet attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This.

A member of our HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

It may take a period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers.
They will help you as quickly as possible.

Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT thread you created until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.

A HJT team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.
