Okay, almost EVERYTIME I get on the Internet I get some spyware. The spyware turns out to be a program that DELETES spyware (of course, it doesn't delete it). I am supposed to register and pay to get the full program, but of course I just uninstall it. By the way, the spyware also puts a desktop in the background thats hard to get rid of, but I can.

If I uninstall it it asks me to restart the computer. When I do, though, and I try to log in to ANY name, I get an error message that says "Explorer.exe made an invalid blah blah blah, please press OK to terminate program." And of course the computer does not load.

THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW! I can't reboot or anything. Please, someone help me! :tazz:

Hi DAkiniShaman! Welcome to G2G!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

Thank you. I will go ahead and check that out.

By the way, where can I get HijackThis?

EDIT: By the way (again), if I follow the pinned instructions, I most likely won't keep getting the spyware again, will I?
