I have a virus that is called SpySherrif. Its hovers on my desktop and has turned the destop black. There is a warning in red that says "WARNING ! SPYWARE DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER. install antivirus or antispyware software to clear your computer. View a list of top spyware removers here"

I have been using some instructions posted on this website , and downloaded Cleanup!

I am just about to use HijackThis but dont want to make a mistake and delete something that will affect the things that are harmless.
Please help.

Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. Do not use HijackThis if you don't really know what you are doing as you will do damage!

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system
