Hi Everyone. I"m a newbie. Running XP on a Dell 3800 Insipron laptop. Got a problem. A window is on my desktop. (top half is yellow, bottom half is blue) and it says --Warning - Spyware Detected on your computer. (Bottom Half) Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer.
I have Lavasoft Ad Aware 2007 and I have scanned with it. Results were that there were 2 infections and it could not deal with it. I also have Kapersky installed and have scanned with that and it comes up clean. I can't find the file or what it is. I am capable of editing the registry. Have done this in the past to remove "Danger - Antivirius" If I could find the file that supports this, I can move against it. Have looked in the Bios and have found nothing out of the ordinary. This has become extremely irritating. Sure hope some one can give me a solution on this The laptop is old but I like it even though the fan stopped working. I would sure appreciate any help any of you Techies can give me. And would it be wothwhile to take it in and have the fan repaired?

Regarding the fan, I think that depends more on how much you really like the laptop and whether you can get a good price if you choose not to do it yourself (sometimes easy and sometimes a real pain - I'm not sure which category Dell falls into).


For the malware:
Please run the steps listed in the linky below and submit the requested scanlogs:
Read me before posting a request for assistance

  • Please post the DSS extra.txt as an attachment to your post using the “Manage Attachments” button (scroll down when composing your post).
  • Hold off on posting the Uninstall List. The DSS extra.txt ought to suffice.

I or one of the other volunteers will be happy to help as time permits. I'm a bit over-extended at the moment, but will try to reply in a timely manner if nobody else jumps in.

Best Luck :)
