I have a problem with my machine concerning a windows pop up. It says warning potential spyware operation.Your computer is making unathororized copies of your system and internet files.Run a scan to prevent ant unathorised access to your files. Click yes to download spyware remover.If you click yes it a screen pops up saying AVS system care but it wont download it because my computer settings wont allow it. I have run spybot and norton scans and they do remove threats but they reappear on the startup. Norton quarantines Trojan.kill av and spybot identifies windows problems concerning redirect notice,registry,and secuity centre. These can be removed but when you switch off and restart and scan again the windows pop up starts agian and spybot and norton find the same entries. What is worrying me most is when i click start and control panel the control panel screen opens with the icons displayed but if i try to open any of them it says this operation has been cancelled due to the restrictions on this computer contact system administrator i am the system administrator on this pc. Also in the start menu again set program access and defaults try to open this and its the same message. I have opened ms config and tried system restore but i can only select one date 17.09.07. I cant change the month or day i think this is when the problem has installed itself on my machine. I have disabled some programs at startup and i can get access to the control panel and set program access and open them but i not sure if i am stopping the correct programs and they are still on my machine and i would rather get rid of them. Even with these programs off the windows pop up still appears. I have a little pc knowledge but not alot can anyone help solve these problem
