got this problem a few days ago while surfing the web (ie: nobody go to 80scartoons.net unless you have some sort of virus protection that is up to date...i didn't at the time :tazz: )

been trying to do all i can to fix this. got norton antivirus, and that would've worked, had i gotten it before this whole mess, but now it won't recognize it since its already in the system and operating. tried doing safemode, but the virus seems to work then as well.

looked at the "You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log" and did the first few steps. did some spyware/adware scans and got some stuff taken care of, but much of it didnt really have anything to do with the virus anyways.

right now, been looking at other threads with the same problem and used some of the solutions to get rid of some issues, like the desktop malfunctioning, as well as a couple of things in the hijackthis logs. i also deleted the icons in the system32 file for the tiles that keep coming up for all those p0rn/gambling/whatever shortcuts.

currently, my desktop background is fine, but the tiles still come up, just with no picture since i deleted their icons. also, the default webpage keeps changing, as well as popus every few minutes. i would really appreciate any help you guys can send my way.

here's the hijackthis log:

forgot to mention earlier that there is a "x" with a red circle around it in the system tray which keeps saying that there is a virus in the system (not the actual virus), and tries to get me to download some phony spyware stuff.

also, along with the internet popus, a warning comes up with every other one saying that there some sort of error with "Error #317 - Microsoft Windows Security Warning" which states:

"Your computer is corrupted with spyware virus.
You must patch your PC urgently to pretect your system.
Private ino is accessed by ports:


You can patch your PC for free now and delete all spyware viruses.

Click OK to choose and download free spyware removal using AntiSPY."

really need help here, as i've done all the steps in the "You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log," and now need someone to analyze the log above so as i know how to fix this.
