today while i was surfing the web suddenly somekind of spyware infected my computer.
when i checked i saw that the spyware was called spysheriff and even after i tried to uninstall it several times it kept on coming back and on the desktop instead of a wallpaper it says:
"your system is infected
system has been stopped due to a serious malfunction
spyware activity has been detected
it is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss
do not use the computer before all apyware is removed"
i tried checking for previous topics and following them but it didnt help.
i am kinda new to all of this so please help me i dont know what to do
