Malware- WinserviceCorp Ltd

I seem to have been infected by a malware programme that is causing pop-up security alerts. The first box is a Security Warning with the publisher given as WinServiceCorpLtd – which sound odd anyway. Given the option to run or cancel I cancelled and was presented with a series of ‘Windows Security Alerts’ saying ‘somebody’ is trying to infect your PC etc etc. I am given the option to download spyware removal for total protection or to cancel. I chose cancel. I ran a full scan with Norton Security Suite 2008 and got an all clear. Webroot Spysweeper picked up and quarantined Worm Win 32.NetBooster plus a number of cookies all of which were quarantined.

I still get the message boxes and cannot get rid of them. One side effect is that my task manager has been disabled!

Even being careful not to accept anything, I still get a download box trying to install so- called Antispyware Master.

Can anyone help to rid me of this pest please?
I can if necessary type all the messages received but I doubt if that will Help as they are all spurious.

As is obvious because I am typing this, I can still, with difficulty and constant interuptions from pop up warnings of impending doom use my PC

Help please?

You could also download some Spyware Programs and update them and run in Windows Safe Mode.

Super Antispyware
Spyware Terminator
SpyBot Search and Destory
