    Hi, I tried to find info on this and couldn't and I don't have much time since I'm using someone else's computer and I am really scared. :( I was on google today and this message about "Antivirus SP Install" came up and I tried to cancel it but I'm not sure what happened and then everything froze. When I rebooted my desktop was white with a message saying "Window's warning: Spyware Detected on your Computer! and the names were something like sys32.privacyremoverms64 and another one. I am scared to turn my computer on again so I cannot get the exact names. I tried running Norton 360 and it found something but then shut down and when I tried to reboot the next time I could not do anything, there is just an hourglass so I turned it off again and left it off.

    I had a virus a few years ago that someone on here helped me fix (thank you!) but I don't remember anything, including how to put my computer in safe mode. I'm in med school and in the middle of studying for boards so this is the worst possible timing and I don't know what to do. If noone can help me on here maybe there is a suggestion of where I could take my computer?
