I'm sorry to bother you nice people, but this is making me crazy and I do appreciate any (understandable) directions you can give me.
I am definitely a newbie - don't hate me - I'm trying to learn!
Pop-ups are: "Windows Explorer has detected Trojan SPM/LX" and "Security Monitor WARNING! System detected a potential hazard (Trojan SPM/LX) on your computer that may infect executable fines. Your private information on PC safety is at risk. To get rid of unwanted spyware and keep your computer safe you need to update your current security software. Click Yes to download official intrusion detection system (IDS software).
There even appears a pop-up that looks like IE 6 browser that says "Error" - but I didn't order-up IE 6.
I Googled this virus name and then went over to Bleeping Computer to see how to remove it, but, I didn't understand any fo the instructions! (Yes, I'm that new, but really need the help, please).
There were whole lines that read; c:program, etc. etc. etc., but I had no idea what they meant, so I have no way of following instructions.It also said HiJack This, but I don't have that, so I couldn't continue, if I did get the instructions.
You can't know my frustration, in asking for your help, when I've just told you that I really can't follow those instructions, but I bet you're
feeling close to it, in considering how to help me with this.
I'll print the instructions, but I found some words pretty technical and daunting.
If you can help me, I will be so grateful!
