I recently had my computer hijacked. My desktop background changed to an all black screen and it says:

"Warning! Your computer might be infected with spyware or adware !!! Strange homepage, popups, loss of important data and unstable functioning are the sure signs that you are infected.

your coputer is still vulnerable to new attacks."
