Weird Malware taking over wallpaper. {HJT}

  1. My sister's computer is acting up, I ran Spybot, Ad-aware, and Avast but something has still taken over her wallpaper. It's black and says:

    Warning! Spyware threat has been detected on your PC.
    Your computer has several fatal errors due to spyware activity.
    Your IP address in (which is her ip, however when she's logged on elsewhere it still shows that ip) and via this address an unauthorized access was gained by another computer. It is strongly recommended to install an antispyware software to close all secutrity vulnerabilities.

    And I' not good enough with HiJackThis, or Window's machines in general.

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
