February 9, 2011 at 02:16:19
Specs: Windows 7, 3.0ghz/3.9GB
turned m computer on this morning and boom massive fake spyware virus claiming im infected, although it is my fault as i clicked run on an unknown thing last night, i just wasnt paying attention. anyway whenever i try run anything but IE it says cannot run blah.exe because it is infected. so i cant run my antivirus spyware s--- to stop italthough after i ran it i did prevent information leaving through its firewall, heres hoping thats still running and its just hidden it. it also removes all icons from system tray, and calls it self system tools. i checked programs but nothing out of ordinary so i think its in win32 somewhere but i dont know where to look. please help.

If you can get online, download, install and update MalwareBytes freebie which is good at fixing these. If the exe for the download won't run then change it to bat.
Similarly if the actual program won't run then change the program's exe to bat.

If you can't get the download get it on another machine and put it on a flash drive.

Once the thing has been dealt with, if you still can't run exe files, then chose EXE from here:

(but run MalwareBytes first)
