I need help!!!!

Spysheriff installed itself on my computer. Now I have this error message on my desktop. I tried to delete it manually but no matter how hard I try, it comes back after reboot. It also disabled the task manager so I cannot go in and find and close any applications that are preventing me from deleting it.

Can anyone help??? This is such a pain in the rump.

What is a HiJackThis log, where do I find it and how do I access it? I have never heard of this before.

I'm sorry. It's explained in our 'start here' topic. I assumed you went through that one before you came here. You don't have to do that now, because of the nature of your infection.

Please download the latest version of Hijack This. Click here to download the latest version (1.99.1). Please save it in a permanent folder (such as C:\HJT). This is to ensure that backups are saved and accessible in the event you should need it. Follow the instructions below if you are unsure how to save it in a permanent folder:
1.) Click on the link to download HijackThis.exe.
2.) When it pulls up the box (for you to pick a location to save the file), click on the pulldown menu and select "[C:]".
3.) Click on the button to "create new folder" and name the folder HijackThis
4.) Double click on the folder you just made (to go into the folder) and click "save" on the bottom of the box.
Then, run HijackThis by double clicking the HijackThis.exe in the folder you just created.
In the main menu choose 'scan and save the log'. A Notepad file will appear. Copy the entire text and paste it in your reply to this topic.
