I'm helping my brother with his machine.

His fiance downloaded some "anti virus" app that installed malware (don't worry -- they just broke up) which is telling us "Your computer is in Danger! Window Security Center has detected spyware/adware..." etc. Additionally, various windows are popping up (replete with misspellings) instructing the user to download anti-spyware apps (with sheild logos and everything!).

I had great success with this site about 6 months ago and I'm hoping you can assist me again!

Cheers,
dennis

Search the web for that spyware/adware--or should I say anti-virus app--for advice on how to untangle from it.

My suggestion is to save a lot of time by formatting the disk and doing a clean install of Windows.

I have killed Windows Messenger, but the balloon instructing me to "Your computer is in Danger! Window Security Center has detected spyware/adware... click here to install the latest protection tools" persists.

Update: One of the "stop malware" messages references the company "Nous-Tech" out of Cyprus.
Does that ring any bells? Please help!

Well I can Identify one culprit:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System] C:\WINDOWS\System32\testtestt.exe

Testtestt.exe is a varient of the trojan testtest.exe.

"testtest.exe is a Trojan.PPdoor-Q.
testtest.exe opens a back door.
testtest.exe tries to terminate antiviral programs installed on a user computer."

Added by spyware

You are definately infected but should either google how to remove the program (possible multiple infections) or wait for an admin or someone with more knowledge of hijack this to help you. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thank you MFDnSC!
I'm at work now and away from my brother's PC. I'll work on this tonight.
You should know that since my last post I ran Prevx per this link: http://www.greatis.com/appdata/d/t/testtestt.exe_Removal.htm
It detected and quarantined testtestt.exe along with some other apps. I then deleted those files.
The only remaining symptoms are:
1. a "missing dll" message upon starting Windows (don't recall the exact dll -- sorry!)
2. inability of user to access Task Manager "disabled by administrator".
I logged-in in Safe Mode as Administrator and attempted to adjust the Default User's rights, but couldn't see anything that controlled access to Task Manager.
