You definetly have a virus or adware infection. Do not buy the recommended product, it is a SHAM that will do nothing but suck your credit card dry.

People will be along to help with the removal, sit tight.
Cheers,

Do the pop up alert messages look like any of these?
example screenshots 1
example screenshots 2
example screenshots 3
example screenshots rogue apps

If so, and if your using Win XP or 2000, follow the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's "How to remove the Smitfraud/Generic Zlob".

You can delete the smitfraudfix tool. Its frequently updated so your copy will be outdated in no time. Its not intended to be a general scanning tool anyway.

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
To protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection, read:

It is normal that AVG shows that files, the MBR or Boot record to have changed. These are done during normal maintainance, when you or windows updates files or have had to correct errors on the drive. The only time that you should worry is if they also show as infected.

To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in C:\ and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run.

rdsok, Moderator at AVG Forum says in regards to kernel32.dll, wsock32.dll, user32.dll, shell32.dll and ntosknrl.exe showing as changed:

There are many valid reasons for those files to show changed, a Windows update, file system check that replaced them if corrupted, and others. As long as AVG doesn't say they are infected it is ok. If it continues to show changed, delete the following file(s) in the C:\ directory and AVG will create a new one(s)...AVG7DB_F.DAT, AVG7QT.DAT
