Hello! I seem to have been infected with all kinds on my laptop. It is an Acer Aspire 5610 series laptop using Windows xp. I keep getting pop-ups saying I have been infected etc. When I open Internet Explorer it automatically changes to softwarereferral.com, ucleaner.com, pcturbopro, or privacy protector. My wallpaper has also changed to a red screen with a thing with horns on it, and box saying to download software to repair, which obviously I have not clicked on. How can I get rid of all this stuff and get back to normal? Thank you.

Hi werdna67,

Then follow the removal instructions for Privacy Protector or PrivacyProtector.

Does the Screenshot shown of the Ultimate Defender Desktop Background in How to Remove Ultimate Defender resemble your wallpaper?

I still seem to have pcturbopro and ultimate cleaner lurking in the background. I do seem to have got rid of the Ultimate Defender wallpaper though. I now seem to have Stopzilla on the screen, which keeps saying that it has blocked the phishing websites - pcturbopro and ultimate cleaner!

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