    this along with other thing keeps popping up "security warning!
    worm.win32.netsky detected on your machine. this virus is distributed via the internet through email and active-x objects. the worn has its own smtp engine which means it gathers e-mails from your local computers and re redistributes itself...
    system affected windows 2000,nt,me,xp,vista
    security risk(0-5): 5
    recommendations click yes to remove it from your pc immediately
    the weird this is that when it pops up on the task bar it shows it as a folder icon..ive never seen a pop up shown as a folder

    its really starting to piss me off it makes my pc so ****ing slow!!!!
    and i have the little blinking red x on my task bar thing

    ive tried a whole lot of things like prevx
    norton trial i cant afford norton
    ive tried spybot
    malware scanner
    a few more thing that i cant think of i dont know internet explorer things keep popping up i hate i.e
    i use mozilla
    umm system alert warnings keep popping up
    saying that my system is infected
    i dont know what to do anymore
    im trying my best to get rid of the problem...

    im using compaq preserio xp i think its just regular xp

    well if u could help me out that would be wonderful...

    o and every time i start my comp there are three new icons on the desktop there all tools to remove spyware malware ect. i didnt put em there they are just there

    ive had a friend whos comp did the same thing

    i dont remember what he did
    but everytime i delete the 3 icons next time i start my comp they are right back where they were

    a few time my background disappeared and it turned white... my icons were still there but no back ground... so i put the mouse on the very top of the screen and this little dropdown menu came up and it had the "- minimize symbol the restore symbol and the x" so i clicked on the x and it went back to normal but i dont know what that was...

    if u could send me your response if any to [email protected]
    because i dont know how to use this website i just registered to ask this ? i dont know how to see your reply but it would be easier if u just emailed it to me... well thank you
