Please help! My computer was recently infected with some kind of adware. It offers "10 Complimentary Ringtones" from the website I am on (Wikipedia, Facebook, etc.), and if I cancel the pop-up window, another browser window opens advertising ringtones, and it asks me twice more if I am sure I don't want the ringtones. In addition, advertisements pop up in new browser windows at random intervals--the products advertised are WinAntiVirusPRO 2006, WinAntiSpyware 2006, PC Turbo Boost, and others. The URLs are from amaena.com. My computer takes a long time to start up, but it could be because I've recently installed a lot of anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. I've used Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Norton Internet Security, AVG Anti-Spyware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, and Windows Defender to perform system scans, and they have removed several hundred items, but the adware is still there. I've also removed any unknown programs from my computer manually.
