recently..........like a month and a half ago. I ran into some bad spyware that triggered some type of warning on my desktop, and it WONT go away, it dosent lead anywhere. its now my new desktop image and comes on everytime I start my computer. it says that "Spyware infection"
has intruded my computer. But when I run spyware doctor and buttetproof spyware protector it says that there is nothing on my PC. I have tried to change it from the desktop properties but the panal is locked and I cant use it. I have also tried a system restore but it only brings me back to the same thing. could sombody help me, Nothing I do seems to work.
here is the photo of my desktop:

I have a very similar warning as well which appeared two days ago on my system tray. It says that I have a virus infection and I should run an AntiMalware program. If I click on the warning sign, it starts up my browser and connects me to some AntiMalware or AntiSpyware shareware site. I have not followed this up any further.
I have run Fsecure antivirus, SpyBot, Adaware and Spyware Blaster and a couple of registry cleaners.. All of them have been updated. None of them picked up the small icon warning. This warning comes up everytime I boot up even with the modem discconected. If I click on the warning sign again and then it will start up my browser but of ocurse there will be no internet connection.
I would like to know where to look and find the offending script in my registry and system files, and then just delete it.
Clicking oin that warning and going to that site automatically loads Spyware on your computer.
If I remember correctly, there is some DLL or another that is loaded at startup that produces that warning message. Post a Hijackthis Log here, so we can look at it.

download, install, update adaware and ewido anti-malware. scan your pc in SAFE MODE. also install and use 'ccleaner' to clear your pc junk. also using this utility check up on your startup items and disable those you find suspicious.
it should help. if it doesnt, run hijackthis. post your logfile here or in www.hijackthis.de for scrutiny.

if im thinking right i had the smae problem as you and i got rid of it by installing heaps of free and trail versions of antispyware software and antivirus.
I think that spyware and something else was the main ones that found somethings. If none of these work you could take it into a computer shop and they will fix it but the only problem with this is that you will have to pay them the money to do this..
anywayz i hope this helped if not you can get back to me through this site and i will think of some new ideas...
