I have a problem with something that has been embeded into my computer.
The other day, whilst downloading a file onto my computer, other files downloaded themselves. I did a scan with Pandasoftware and AVG and removed several trojans and infected files. However, I now have on my desktop a large warning that says 'Warning: you are in danger' and urging me to rid myself of all spyware etc. When my mouse pointer goes over this area, it changes to a hand which indicates that it is executable. I executed it and found myself on the site of Antivirus Gold by ICommerce wanting me to buy a copy of their software. In short, nothing I do seems to get rid of this. I also can't change my desktop.
I have emailed them but had, as expected, no reply.
I have used Adaware SE, Registry Mechanic, Hijackthis, CWShredder and various online scanners to no avail. Does anybody know how to resolve this.
I also have on my computer 3 files, they are: a virus called IRC/Backdoor.Flood, a Trojan called HideWindow and another one called IRC/Backdoor.Flood.
These are all in a file in Windows\system32 called rOze.exe and AVG tells me that it cannot be healed. Is there a way of doing this or is it possible to delete rOze.exe? I don't know what this file does.
Thanks for any help,
Pete

1 you should NEVER use more then ONE anti-virus on your computer, eaither use AVG OR Panda, but not together.

2 as I read in one area in here that it is recommended that you should have 1 AV (anti virus) 2 anti-spyware software and 1 Firewall
