ive been using firefox wo a prob for sometime now but my wife was in the habbit of running internet explorer. yesterday after she was finished i got attacked w pop ups. i used avg, ad-ware SE, vundo fix, and spybot, which have been no help.
my symptom:
-my desktop back ground has permanently changes to a blue screen that reads "warning spyware threat has been detected on your PC, your comp has several fetal errors due to spyware activity..."

and i cant bring up my "ctrl+alt+delete" menu either.
what are my options other than reformat?

Do a system restore. It will restore all your settings to a previous date. You will loose some recent info and hopefully the virus your wife contracted. Good luck.

if you have the same one i have, the computer is so busy doing the spyware thing you can't do a restore-a freind of mine is going to uninstall windows and reinstall it with the disc-i've been using the laptop while he is doing the pc

if you want to try to restore, go to the start menu-click all programs-click accessories-click system tools-then click system restore-you will then go to a screen where you can pick a date to restore to, like in march or something,mine was to frozen even to get that far, good luck

Try restarting in safe mode, then running your spyware programs.
how do i do that?

When your booting up your computer hit "F8" to bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu", highlight "start in safe mode" and hit enter

:+1: :idea:

Also - if you're using Spybot Search/Destroy - there's an option to run the scan on startup BEFORE you actually get in to Windows -- if you want to give it a shot, let me know and I'll PM you the FAQ with the instructions on it...
