and it is the worse one ever. I have run norton antivirus, adaware,
spybot, and cwshredder, and nothing has fixed this.
Here's the problem, twofold: (1) my desktop has been hijacked and my
usual picture is replaced by a black webpage with yellow writing that

buy...obviously all a part of the scam. I have gone into my display
settings in the control panel under customize desktop, and web, and
there is a file listed there called "security." I uncheck it, and it
goes away, bringing back my old desktop. However, upon reboot it
brings it all back!
(#2) In my system tray, there is a little yellow triangle with an
exclamation mark in it, and every few minutes it pops up with a warning
that reads "warning, your computer is at risk...spyware detected on
your pc....windows did not find spyware protection on this
computer...click to chooose a recommended spyware sweeper" (obviously

when you don't it pops up a blue website that appears to be a windows

I have tried EVERYTHING, usually am able to fix these problems. Can
someone, anyone please help!!!!
