My desktop has a system tool 2011 icon that was not there before, and my background has changed to blue screen with 0s and 1s and this message:'warning, your're in danger your computer is infected with spyware! all you do with computer is stored forever in your hard disk. when you visit sites, send emails...all your actions are logged. and it is impossible to remove them with standard tools. your data is still available for forensics and in some cases for your boss, your friends, your wife, your children. every site you or somebody, even something, like spyware, opened in your browsers with all the image,s and all the downloadedand maybe later removed movies or mp3 songs- are still there and could break your life! secure yourself right now! remoe all spyware from your pc!'
popups like 'warning, application cannot be executed. the file taskeng.exe is infected. please activate your antivirus software' come up whenever i try to run malwarebytes anti malware/mcafee or try to search for anything helpful through my start menu.
i have read several posts on other forums and this one to try to figure out how to get rid of it, but everything i have read seems to have a different kind of software than my computer or an earlier version of the malware/virus/whatever it is.
i have malwarebyte's anti-malware installed as well as a McAfee Security system, there is a shortcut for malwarebytes on my desktop.
i know very little about computers, and so the first thing that i tried when this came onto my computer was to turn it off and back on again, when i did that i was able to run malwarebytes anti malware program for about a minute and a half before the 'system tool' took over again and shut it off.
i am using my roommates mac right now, and will continue to have access to it if that helps at all
please please help!
