    Hey there!

    I am hoping you can help me solve the following issue: I keep getting:

    "Warning ! Potential Spyware Operation! Your computer is making unauthorised copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to prevent any unauthorised access
    to your files! Click YES to download spyware remover ..."

    I do not have access to control panel, regedit, task manager because the message box that keep popping up upon my trying to access one or more of those items says "...has been disable by the adminstrator"

    Per some suggestions in this previous post:
    http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r...-solved-regular-popups-warning-potential.html
    I have run SmitfraudFix in safe mode. As that program tried to clean the registry, I received about ten error messages saying something to the effect of "access to that file has been blocked." After that program ended, the log still says the registry was cleaned???

    Below, please see the attached log files associated with
    (i) SmitfraudFix
    (ii) HijackThis log after (i) was complete
    (iii) Superantispyware (with parameters set as mentioned in previous post) run after (ii)
    (iv) HijackThis log after (iii) was complete

    After doing all of this, I'm unfortunately seem to be having the same issues.

    I'm running Win XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2.

    Thank you!

    Hey there!

    I would very much appreciate it if someone could spare a couple of minutes and suggest what I may try as next steps.

    Thanks!
