my desktop has been hijacked and a "Security Warning" is permanently displayed on my desktop. The warning states "A fatal error in IE has occured at 0028:C0011E36 in VXD VMM<01> + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c....* System can not function in normal mode. Please check you security settings...* Scan your PC with any available antivirus/spyware remover program to fix the problem."
When going to Display properties and try to change the background on my desk top, several taps are missing from the dialog box, including the background tap.
Also, from time to time I get a pop up Microsoft error #317 message instructing me to click to have they system scanned for spyware, i assume this is fake, this links me to a page which has MSN across the top.
This is a new one on me? i have tried all manor of programs, Mcafee, microsoft antispyware, xoftspy, adware proffesional,
