I'm seeking help to remove/clean an infection on my computer. I'm pretty sure I recieved it through a Messenger conversation containing an 'evil' link.
This is the situation:
- My desktop picture has been replaced with a blue screen saying:
"Warning: Spyware threat has been detected on your PC.
Your computer has several fatal errors due to spyware activity."
- I'm recieving pop-up windows telling me about warnings.
- My firewall is disabling itself, even when I manually enable it, it only takes a few seconds before it disables automatically.
- I'm recieving notifications from Windows Security Center that my PC has been infected with "trojandownloader.xs" and it opens an IE-window with Spyware program offers.
I've been running several scans using Trend Micro, Ad-Aware and Windows Defender. They found some infected files and cleaned/deleted them, but as you can understand I'm still having problems.
I hope that someone is able to help me. I'm no computer wizard, so please explain any suggestions in 'lay-mans-terms':)
