More virus/adware bullshit
Well my computer nightmare lives.
Preface: Went to website, gave me all this BS about some virus being on my computer and to run antivirus, but it looked like a pop up so I didn't (still don't know if it was or not). Anyway, ever since then I've had massive popups, slow system, websites nothing running right, etc. So I download SpyBot, SpySweeper, and Panda Antivirus. I've ran all of them probably 5 times a piece, each time it picks up new shit.
So now I recently ran all 3 back to back and turned off system restore hoping they wouldn't come back, and it deleted 10 things or so, but I STILL have popups when I go to a few sites, and some of the words are hyperlinked (like on webpages, forums, etc) that say "more info" when I mouse over them.
So what can I do, besides reformatting everything, to get this junk off my desktop for good?
