    So, my computer now has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point icon in the task bar that randomly pops up three different messages at me:
    (paraphrased) "your computer is running slow, may have viruses, click to check for latest security updates"; "internet attack attempt detected, someone is trying to infect your computer, click here for the latest security updates"
    Clicking on the icon brings up an internet explorer page about something called "pc protection center 2008". It also brings up the page every few minutes by itself.
    my desktop has been changed to blue with letters saying "warning: spyware threat has been detected on your PC. Your computer has several fatal errors do to spyware activity. It is strongly recommended you install antivirus software to close all vulnerabilities."
    i found the "getsn32.dll" file under system32 but it wont let me delete it.
