Hello, everyone! Ok, sorry if this is posted in the wrong section. I just joined and need some serious help. Logged into my PC this morning and there were three new icons on my desktop: >Privacy Protector >Spyware&Malware Protection >Error Cleaner On top of that, there were these popups that kept coming up, and all these IE windows kept opening. And my Firefox windows kept crashing. Also, I am unable to open task manager.. Tried going to 'run', but even from there, I couldn't access my task manager. Also, several things from my desktop are missing, and I cannot afford to lose any of my data, but my computer keeps crashing, so I'm unable to back it up. I do run Symantec Antivirus regularly. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with this problem ASAP (considering I've got a major project due tomorrow)! If anyone needs to know, I use Windows XP, but am currently accessing the internet from my friend's laptop.
