I need help. I have a virus/malware that keeps showing up no matter what I do. I've used AVG anti-virus (free addition) and removed all viruses. I've also used Spybot Search and Destroy to remove the virus. As a last resort, I tried to use system recovery.

None of which has worked.

Somewhere along the way, I ended up with a virus that adds other viruses/malware. It shows up with a bunch of annoying pop-ups and alerts that try to make you buy an anti-virus program. When I scan with AVG or Spybot it comes up with litterally TONS of things that need to be fixed (some of which Spybot is unable to remove).

I have no clue what to do now.

Once you have been infected you need to turn off system restore and scan again, since the malware is still on your system. Also try scanning in "safe mode". Spybot doesn't do much these days, I would try Spyware Terminator, Super AntiSpyware and Spyware Doctor (free from Google)- all free programs.
