  1. Hi
    My pc has recently become REALLY weird lately..
    The desktop changed to this bright blue color saying "CRITICAL WARNING"
    umm.. I also get random pop ups non stop..
    I tried using Ad-ware, Norton antivirus & other programs..but they all just don't seem to be able to fix whatever the problem is..
    I believe this virus or wuteva got into my pc after I went into an internet site..
    I have also attached a logfile from HIJACKTHIS.
    Thank you

    On first sight:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [load32] C:\WINDOWS\System32\winldra.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sys254] C:\WINDOWS\sys254.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [sys254] C:\WINDOWS\sys254.exe

    And all the stuff in "O15 - Trusted Zone" doesn't look like you want it to be there...

    follow these instructions
    It appears that your problem is a bit more nasty and requires Safe Mode + turning off System Restore.
