help me geeks to go....your my only hope.
So, I somehow downloaded CoolWWWSearch and spysherriff. After running spybot S&D, MS virus check and ad-ware on safe mode i think i got most of it. but, then upon my first attempt I got A "failed to initialize (0xc0000022) click OK to terminate." error. Only my background would appear.
So, i went back to safemode and undid some of the deletions. Then, when i restarted, the desktop was black again and it said "Your computer has been infected. Click here." A sure sign of Coolwwwsearch.
So, I Spybot S&D again and zapped it. But, when i restart now, my system is very unstable. The desktop icons continually disappear and reappear and the CPU usage goes up and down. Also, I think that right before it happens..my MS fire wall/zone protector says something from my computer is trying to access 'c:\windows\qerkj.dll/sp.html#88449%resultposition.net' and a website - i'll post it when i restart.
Other weird things? i can't access any microsoft stuff - no MS Word, no 'my computer' and i can't even run spybot. even registering for this site was really hard (the web browser kept going to previous page and back) which makes me think its a virus.
it's driving me crazy
right now, i'm using firefox and that's the only thing that really works. someone..somewhere...in the universe. HELP
