Hi All, I chanced upon this website while looking for a cure for my poor ole PC. The symptoms are fairly cloes to what some of the members have described: 1) Three unknown/uninvited desktop icons - Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector, Spyware&Malware Protection - Properties being the following link (http://virusprotectionproonline.com/shandler.php?sid=502&aid=398&said=0&pn=0&sg=1) 2) Several pop-ups that appear in a variety of ways - In the taskbar as a red flashing X - A Windows Security Alert - A remove the LookSky trojan warning box - And some others which I have forgotten that forcibly loads the webpages safewebnavigate, softwarereferral, pccleaner, etc. 3) Programs switch from one to another seemingly randomly at intervals 4) My security software warning me that something is trying to change my homepage, BUT it is www.msn.com that is trying to hijack my homepage! :suspiciou I have ran several checks with various softwares (Spybot S&D, AVG) while in Safe Mode and have removed close to 70 threats but these few remain. I would like to seek the help of more experience members of this forum as not using my PC is robbing me of my livelihood! Thanks very much in advance for reading, and possibly lending a hand. Cheers!
