Hey..I just recently got this problem, and I been getting a message at the bottom of the screen telling me I have spyware on my computer and I need to remove it. Well I went online to get AvG, spybot, and even tried super spyware removal. When going to run Spybot after I install it. It won't run, when going to install AvG it doesn't finish installing, and when trying the other one it just won't run to let me install. Did the same for Killbox also. So just wondering is there anything I can do to get these programs to run without restoring my system?

You seem to have a malware infection which prevents security apps from running -- a known malware issue. I suggest you let the 'Malware' team help you. They have their own dedicated forum-areas, one of which is here: http://www.geekstogo...o-Here-f37.html Read the 'pinned' posts on that page, then download and run 'HijackThis' and post it's log to them, briefly explaining your problem.
Please be patient waiting for your log to be analysed as the team are very busy -- HJT logs have increased dramatically over the years, along with incidences of more sophisticated malware infections.

Oh, and please do not post your HJT log anywhere else other than the malware area. Thank you.
