my sister clicked on a link given to her on msn, now we have a red shield prompting us to install "system live protect" to get rid of our "spyware infection" with balloons poping up every 5 mintues or so from the system tray. I have been trying to get rid of this with the regular anti-virus/anti-spyware tools I use, {adaware SE personal, Spybot Search & Destroy, spysweeper(w/o virus scan), NOD32} to no avail. I have no idea what information I need to give you to diagnose this problem, so:


HEELLLLLLLLPP!!!~

I have not found any sure cure for the malware you have. I did find one site where it was advised to use the SDFix.
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.
Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
