Having problems with your Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop ?

Got a malware, now computer is screwed up bad.

\015 I got a virus from a guy who IM'd me, an add for Spyware 2009 kept popping up. I think it was a password eating worm or Trojan thing. My son got THAT off, but now, I can't get onto my accounts (I've got 3) unless I reboot every time. Then, when I get on my MAIN account, I get this instead of my Earthlink homepage...Oops! This Link Appears to be Broken. Cannot connect. HTTP 404 cannot be found? When I do the OTHER two, the homepage will come up...it seems to be just my main account, which is the one I have all my important stuff on. I've got to give you my e-mail at work cause I can't get to the one at home. Thanks!\015

Answers :

Spyware 2009 is a malaware itself.

Try removing it with Spy Bot, if it does not work you may have to reinstall the system after backing up your data, that is the only efficient way when the computer is really infected.
