i am using windows vista and i have got a problem that has really confused me.
I get a large windows / message appearing as soon as i log on saying "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer, install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer".
I have used windows defender and ad-aware to check for infection, two infections were found and removed, however when i reboot the message re appears!! it looks like this is not a real window it is actually an image on the desktop background, but when i put my own image back as the dekstop background this warning message appears on a reboot.
Any specifics of what was found? In the meantime try the following Malwarebytes Anti-malware click here SUPERAntispyware click here Both free Download/install/get latest updates/run (one at a time) in Safe Mode
1. Click the Start menu, select Run. 2. Type taskmgr.exe into the the Run command box, and click “OK.” You can also launch the Task Manager by pressing keys ALT + CTRL + DELETE or CTRL + Shift + ESC. 3. Click Processes tab, and find Vista Antivirus 2008 processes. 4. Once you’ve found the Vista Antivirus 2008 processes, right-click them and select “End Process” to kill Vista Antivirus 2008. I would also recomend running superantispyware in safe mode., good luck with your problam.,
