You are infected. This is spyware of the worse sort.

What ever you do don't click on the link provided.

1. download adware (free version0, spybot (free version) and CCleaner (also free)

2. don't install yet - re-boot to safe mode. Then install these three.
a. run adware first - keep running till it comes up clean
b. then run spybot - keep running till it comes up clean
c. then run ccleaner - 1st Cleaner till it is clean (run over and over till it does not find any more) - then run its Registry Cleaner - and fix DO NOT BACKUP - run till it finds no more problems.

3. Click on 'my computer' - go to "program files" - list in Date Modified - anything that YOU DID NOT install in the past few days DELELTE the folder.

4. Run CCleaner again (as in step 2c).

Reboot.

When in windows click on Help and Support - Restore computer to earlier time - at least two days before you think this screen 1st came to you.

When done, it should be gone and cleaned.

Possible spyware has been detected


Try installing a program called adware, its free and can remove any spyware you may be getting. Try that and then see how it goes, you shouldn't have to run a recovery just for a bit of spyware.

I need ur help again


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and if I may remark, a very challenging and time consuming virus cleanup. Some that you could try:
  • determine what virus files/names are involved. Some would be appearing in "msconfig" startup;
  • some would not allowed to be deleted, try delete in Safe Mode;
  • in some instances, some services would have to be stopped using Ctrl-Alt-Del;
  • download, install and run RRT (remove restriction tool);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Warning.... Spyware Detected On Your Computer


If you see warnings like this, you may have inadvertently downloaded a script from a rouge website. I would cancel out of the message and download the free edition of AVG. Install it and run it in Safe Mode. Also, download, the free edition of Ad-aware, install it and run it also.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Cant load a map because Google has detected unregistered Antivirus 2009 copy on your computer. Google


It has been my experience that messages like these are really spyware programs the redirect you to their websites to purchase their junk. I would recommend running through you program listings (Add/Remove Software)and removing anything you don't absolutely need or don't know of. Google maps is a javascript application, so anything loading a javascript library that isn't from Sun Microsystems is probably suspect. Look for anything with java or jscript in the name, or, anything that doesnt have a description. Most are toolbar apps or search engines. Your Antivirus might pick it up as spyware and might not. So a thorough spyware check is heavily recommended.

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.


That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at housecall.trendmicro.com when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.

As soon as the computer is turned on, approx. 15 warning screens and advertisements pop up and while trying to "x" out of all of them, the computer seems to freeze saying that viruses have been...


Doesn't sound good, does it?

First, make sure your popup blocker is turned on.

Second, Do you have any anti-spyware programs down loaded? If so, run them. AdAware is good, and free, as is Spybot!

If you need help with doing this, get back to me.

Wallpaper changed to something blue with yellow and blue dialog


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
