Thank you in advance for taking the time to be of help.
My laptop got infected with the Windows Recovery virus a few weeks ago. I followed the steps here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-recovery) and managed to remove the worst of the virus.
My laptop runs on windows Vista
I can now use the laptop for every day tasks and my files are visible, etc. However, there are still (at least) 2 problems remaining.
1) Even when no applications appear to be running, the audio output intermittently gets hijacked and I hear people with Australian accents talking about celebrity gossip.
2) I regularly get a pop up saying "Internet Explorer script error" which trys to direct me to the following site: (hxxp://www.gossipcenter.com/jayde-nicole/jayde-nicoles-cleavage-ful-night-out-cleo-424042?adv=miva). I have tried to post a screen shot of below, I'm not sure if it will work.
In addition to following all the steps in the above Windows Recovery virus removal tutorial, I have done quite a few full scans and repairs using both MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware. I have run this in both Safe mode and normal mode.
I would appreciate any advice on how to remove this virus.
EDIT: I ran OTL - let me know if the outputs will be useful and will PM them to you
