Hi all, I seem to have picked up a particually nasty bit of spyware, it keeps plugging a program called spyware strike 2.5, keeps popping up 'your computer is infected' and then runs a fake program that tells me I have X amount of threats and have to buy the full version to remove them.

I've tried ad-aware and spybot S&D to no avail, worth running an AVG scan on the lot in case its a bit more integral?

Any help greatly appreciated

start it in safe mode and run ad removal?
also have you checked your add/remove programs?also go into RUN>msconfig>and check for unknown programs in the start up panel

Sounds exactly like WinFixer, which can be a real PITA to get rid of :(
