  1. Hello guys,

    I am in desperately need of help, I normally take care of this situations but this one got me badly. I just cant get rid of it and it just got worst. Now I am getting pop ups, warnings, and all kind of possible annoying messages pretending to be from windows. I know this issue has been previously addressed and I would appreciate if you can help me in my own current situation.

    Description of the problem: Pop ups of "Anti-Spyware" programs and removal tools such as SpyStorm and others. Task bar messages pretending to be windows generated (same style and everything) saying that my computer is working is slowly doe to spyware infection. "windows security alerts" saying I am being attacked and that I should click the bubble to FULLY SCAN my computer. I dont buy that story.

    Cant use Task manager or Regedit to take care of the problem. its says "Task manager has been disabled by your administrator".

    I hate to be in this situation because I am normally very careful of the sites that I visit, and to be honest, I dont even have a clue where this one came from.

    I do all my banking and payments from this computer but right now I am stuck. I am trying to be careful of what I type.

    Help... S O S.

    I hope eveyone had a happy mother's day.

    Thanks!

    Ed.
