Okay. I would like to start by saying thank you for this site. I use a computer but don't konw how to fix onw. So this has been a very helpful forum.
My computer started to automatically make desktop icons for spyware removal and I would get warning popups that my computer was infected. Also Internet Explorer Kept on opening up to different spy ware removal programs. I did not use any of those spy ware removers.
I found you forum and followed the steps directed and will post them here and let you know of all the results.

1. Did the ATF.

1.5 Sorry had to come back and fill this in. I do not know what was being asked about the msconfig settings. I figured since I didn't know about them I probably have done anything to them. I moved on to the next step.

2. Did the Create a system restore point and got rid of all the older ones.

3. Downloaded and Ran AVG. Now I set the program up as directed so a log would be generated after each scna but when it was finished there was no scan. I double checked the settings and they are correct. I am sorry I have no scan log for this step.

4. Superantispyware log

In conclusion my comp is starting up fast now. I would take 15-20 minutes before I did all of this but know it seems to be back to normal. THANKYOU!!!. I am not getting the desktop icons on my screen. I am not getting the warning pop ups. My home screen for internet explorer is not getting change anymore nor is it onpening by itself anymore. again thankyou. I would appreciate if someone could review these logs to see if it has all been cleaned up or there is something still hiding as the Panda scan stated I was still infected. Thank you again for the help. Just let me know what to do and please go step by step as you did with your prior instruction as I am not too familiar with this aspect of computers. Thank you again.

I would like to add something new. When I startup windows now I am encountering some issues. When I log into my account my system will shut down and restart. I am also getting an error message that winlogin.exe had to close due to a problem. Other than that everything else seems to be running normally. Thanks again
