Yesterday I recived a red x in my system tray box along with a balloon pop up that said "Your computer Is Infected" I tried to deleate this x and it tried taking me to some download. I stopped this right away. I installed and ran SuperAntiSpyware. I also did a full system scan with my antivirus, (AVG free Edition). Im still have some issues with this problem. Things are running slow, my computer has been low on virtual memory, and I even tried a system restore, but it wont run restore. Just wondering if I can get some help? If I remember correctly it was trying to install a file called " windows antivrus 2008". Any help would be appreicated.
