Somehow, I'm really not sure, it seems I have a virus on my computer. I have run Norton AntiVirus, SpyBot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware SE Personal, and McAfee and none of them have detected this obvious threat. The reason I say it is obvious is because it keeps popping up, giving me fake error messages. There is a yellow triangle in my start-up tray, which flashes and has the following bubble attached to it: "System Alert: Trojan-Spy.Win32.mx". I could first tell it was a virus because the world "balloon" at the bottom of the popup message was spelled wrong. Also, it kept opening up Internet Explorer windows, offering me services to download certain spyware programs. I remember one of them had the name "antivermin" in it. I have uninstalled Internet Explorer and it still keeps popping up with those windows. Can someone please help? None of the antivirus or antispyware programs are detecting or removing this virus. I am at home right now, but when I go back to school tomorrow I will be on a big network and don't want to infect others. Thank you so much to whoever can help me!!!!!
