Hi everyone, This is going to sound a little urgent but bear with me. About a day ago, a virus completely took over my computer. Here are the symptoms: - Changes desktop background every time I restart computer and log on to Windows to "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer". I am unable to change it by simply right-clicking the desktop because they have removed the tab with that option. I can go to a picture and set is as the background but again, it will get change upon the next time I start Windows. - Upon logging into Windows, a pop-up is there asking me to agree to some AntiVirus program installation. In my task manager, when I end the process called tmp59.tmp.exe (I think), the pop-up goes away. - When I try to conduct a Google search, all the 'hit' links redirect me to some unrelated site which usually have to do with spyware. - I can't load G-mail and several other sites properly. - I tried running an Ad-Aware scan but get an error. However, with the Internet disabled it works. The scan did not correct the problem unfortunately. - My computer periodically freezes; it's basically unusable. - It also occasionally freezes up at the log-in screen to Windows (after I put in my password). Now, I hope this is all one virus because all this together started occurring at the same time. I've attached a HJT log I ran when the problems first started occurring. I hate to sound selfish, but I really need my computer back within the next couple days. I have a major standardized test coming up very soon. Thanks so much for any help.
