|I got malware or a virus. My wallpaper changed to say that I have a critical warning. The exact desktop message reads: "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected. It is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer before all spyware removed."|
I managed to get rid of the desktop message (using AntiVir until the scan stopped for no apparent reason. The scan did not complete and I can't get it to scan again.) Under Desktop, the "critical_warning" file still appears in the list. The current wallpaper is the blue screen without the message written out above and I can't change it because this Desktop/Background page is locked up.
My homepage was changed (to google, oddly). I cannot access system restore, nor can I use Malewarebytes or other antivirus programs because I get a message that reads: "Windows cannot access the specified file. You may not have permissions to access the item." I have AntiVir PE Classic, which also won't fully run (it starts scanning, then stops).
Fortunately, I have a desktop so that I can post here and try to resolve the problem. Would someone please walk me through fixing this problem? Thank you very much!
Someone asked me to run the following report:

She then told me I had Max++. I tried to run a DDS log, but nothing happened when I did. So I guess I will not be able to produce a log. Can someone please help me?
