Hi, I just stumbled upon this site, I've noticed there have been a few people with the same problem as me.

On my desktop, there is a website photo thing saying 'You have spyware on your computer, Click here to fix' etc. Not being able to click on any programs, along with an Exclamation in a yellow triangle on my taskbar that pops up every 20 to 30 seconds saying 'Warning! Your computer is at risk, No spyware detected, click here...' --- Also, when you click their advertisement there is a link on the bottom saying "Uninstall" which gives you instructions on how to get rid of their spyware and use the Control Panel/Customize Desktop/Uncheck Web Box --- and apologize about it with links to download their .exe cleaning programs OR log into Safe Mode while deleting:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\runsrv32.exe <-File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\runsrv32.dll <-File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\txfdb32.dll <-File
....yadda yadda blahblah...
This apparently came from TopAntiSpyware .com

I've gone through msconfig and used Ad Aware, Spybot, and Trendmicro. Erased recommended files, and still nothing has fixed this desktop malware problem. Tried control panel/customize desktop/uncheck website... But Noooope, nothing works.

I've tried deleting spoolsrv32.exe since it's been also linked to TopAntiSpyware but it's currently in use. Also tried deleting the source code and html for the desktop website/photo, but it keeps regenerating every time I empty the bin.

Plllllleeeeeeaaaassssseeee Help! :tazz:

I am new to the HijackThis thingamagiggy, so I'm not sure what to do... But here's the log:
