My computer is f*cked!

Basically, I think it's from looking at porn on the internet. But yeah, my desktop has been changed to a picture of a biohazard symbol and it says YOUR PRIVACY IS IN DANGER. I've tried changing it back to normal, but it just doesnt work.

Also I get the occasional alert saying I have a trojan, but it looks kinda fake. And my homepage has been changed to some site saying I need to download some anti virus/anti spyware ****. It's all ****ed.

And every webpage I look at is covered in pop ups...and I have an extra bar with buttons labelled: Remove Pop Ups, Scan Spyware, Security Test or Spam Protection.

I really gotta get rid of all this ****. I'm scanning my computer with my proper anti virus program at the moment, and I'm also defragging my computer. But if you guys have any better ideas, help me out please.

And dont give me directions that will sabotage my computer, please!

The occasional alert saying you have a trojan sounds right, get some good anti-spyware software (AVG is great, and it is free) which will delete all the bad stuff you have on your computer. Really, anti-virus is the only thing you can do, unless you want to re-format your computer, which I don't think you do.

And for the love of god, NEVER download anything it asks you to. it'll just make it worse.

Reformatting is only a last ditch attempt or a cheap way out. I fixed a friends pc which was plastered with spyware and ran like a dog. simply booting into safe mode and messing with the registry and MSconfig sped it up enough so that i could actually get online and download spybot. its now more or less useable!

Then get a refund.

That would only work if he actually bought it there

Layer?

It basically flags the sectors on the drive as being useable. nothing except special programs can read what it was overwritten with. plus, theres software that can pretty much eradicate any data on the drive by constantly filling it with dummy data then deleting it
