    :confused:This past Saturday I was in a rush and I clicked yes in some popup boxes.... bad idea... anyhow, now my computer has 2 separate red circles, one blinking and one not, with balloons the popup saying System alert and Spyware alert, and Your system is infected. Also, there are 3 icons on my desktop and in my favorites that keep reappearing after I delete them: Spywayre&Malware Protection, Error Cleaner, and Privacy Protector. And also when I try to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, it says the task manager has been disabled by the administrator. And now my computer is running really really slow.... Not sure what to do. I've read different forums on what to do and the programs to download but I think I'm doing more harm than good. :confused: PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks
