Hello all, I have been very troubled lately with this problem. My computer has gotten a blue screen wallpaper with "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer, Install an Antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer" and an Antivirus XP 2008 giving me popupsevery minute. I did not install this software and when i tried to remove it, it is still there. I really need help because my computer is running slow and i cannot change the screensaver and wallpaper. I really hope a good soul will help me get my computer back. Thank you

Sorry for another update. I know im being troublesome but I have ended three processes which are made up of funny letters and numbers one of which is the same name as the programme file for the antivirus folder. I presume the other two are what makes the wallpaper and desktop change. However, i am still unsure of what will happen when i restart my computer, or if all the malicious stuff are gone. Please guide me to how i can confirm my doubts. Thank you

I am very sad. When i restarted my comp, everything came back, the wallpaper and the screensaver. Thankfully, the antivirus is gone because i deleted it so no more irritating popups. But the wallpaper and screensaver keeps coming back!!!!! And i cant change it. Please help me
