When the system started I now have all kind of desktop icons, that when deleted just come back. I have an icon in the system tray of that looks like the Windows error icon, the red circle with white X in it. When clicked a browser page opens of the website antispy.newgenlook.info. I also get balloon pop-ups from this icon stating things such as "My computer has been infected by a stealth trojan and will not boot properly next startup, and Unkown Pop-ups detected.
My home page was changed to a newgenlook.info page, and I get various pop-ups and redirects including [bleep] site. One real annoying thing is I will get a system message that states the following:
Error 317 - Microsoft Internet Security Warning
Windows is corrupted with spyware virus.
You must patch your pc urgently to protect your system
Private info 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
I always close or "cancel" this message and it always redirects me.
I have tried ad-aware, spybot, spydoctor, along with my McAfee scan to no avail. I am very computer illiterate and do not understand computerese so please be patient and kind when answering.
