Hello - I hope someone can help me with my computer troubles. I seem to have some sort of virus. I'll give a description of the problems I'm having first and then post the HijackThis log.

I have two icons on my desktop that weren't there before. One is "Windows Update" and the other is "Help and Support." If I try to delete them, they simply reappear. If I click on either icon, it opens a browser window that appears to be a fake Microsoft support page asking me to install a "storage protector" program that will fix my problems. The address in the browser window begins with www.storageprotector.com/blahblahblah.

I get numerous critical error messages. ("***STOP [memory locations]***, Inaccessible handler or device. Click this balloon to fix the problem") The error messages sound serious, but they are written and formatted poorly. Another example, verbatim:

"Windows performed illegal operation.Your system files could have critical errors.It could cause unpredictable or erratic behavior, freezes and crashes.Fixing these errors can increase your computer's performance and prevent data your personal data loss.

Would you like to open System Troubleshooting center to fix the problem? (Recommended)"

I have thousands of .tmp files in my C:\ that can't be deleted. My computer takes a long time to start and is very sluggish. The error messages start before it even finishes booting up completely.

I also get pop ups in IE, but I always use Firefox as my main browser. The popup is usually something about a love or crush calculator.

I googled "Storage Protector virus" to research it a little bit before posting here. I found steps for manual removal, but couldn't find the files and processes on my computer. I used IceSword (and regedit) to look at the registry. The suggested .exe processes I was instructed to stop weren't listed in Windows Task Manager. So, I haven't made any modifications. I'm starting to wonder if the virus is even related to storage protector.

Here's the HijackThis log:

Hopefully, I followed the directions properly and someone can make sense of this. I'll be eagerly awaiting a response before I attempt to fix anything. Thanks
