back at around the 23rd of december 2005,i was browsing the net on Avant Browser. It suddenly froze and a large msg came up on the screen saying that there was someine hacking my computer from a remote location and had access to the following files:Cookies. Right i wasnt that worried cos i just cleared the folders of their history and done a spyware scan. When i restarted my computer the problems began. A pop up in the corner of my screen KEPT coming up and would not go away so i just took no notice of it. But after about 20 minutes my wallpaper disappeared and now it has a blue screen then a black square in the centre that says in lare red writing spyware infection. Click the pop up in the corner to let windows fix it for you, so foolishly i did and nothing happened and then suddenly a programme called spyware sheriff was installed on my computer. It automatically did a scan without my consent and said i had 700spyware viruses. And then when i clicked on clear it asked me to buy the product so i ust clicked out of it. Next thing my internet explorer disapeared off my desktop and whenever i try to change my wallpaper back to normal it wont let me. I have tried to do a system restore but no matter what date i try it will not restore for me. I do not want to do a fsctory reset as i have way to much stuff on my computer to be cleared over this stupid thing as i am sure some sort of programme will remove it. It has severly slowed down my computer severly and i have done lots of registry repair scans and nothing works and whenever i scan microsoft anti spy ware ad ware something comes up everytime ie it wont go away!! So i installed pc cillin internet security 14 and it hasnt done anything either. So plese im too afraid to even make a purchase online cos im scared that this hacker and the adware software can see all my credit card numbers and stuff and its ruining my desktop! So please can somebody out there give me guidence on how to fix this problem??? Thankyou

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
