I was working on internet and suddenly a program appeared showing that I have plenty of adwares. My desktop wall paper has disappeared. Instruction of spyware takes me to the spy away web site and asking me to buy it. I have symantac installed in my computer but this warning got stuck on my screen. It keeps up popping up of its own and shows red color danger fro my computer. Spy away is what it is asking me to buy. What should I do?

Please download SDFix from here and save it to your desktop

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Post that log in your next reply.

=================================

Ok.We need to download ComboFix.exe.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool


When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log so that we can continue to do any further cleaning that your system may require.
