Re: UPDATED: @!*(%$@ I'm infected with spyware/malware again.....anyone else?

I got one yesterday from Diaperswappers (it was the only thing running on my computer at the time).
It made the background of my computer blue and said "Warning: Your're infected with spyware" or something liek that. Then it kept running this bogus "system security" program that I couldn't stop. I couldn't run anything else on it.

So, I turned off the computer manually (i.e. pushed the on/off button to shut it off) and booted up in safe mode. From there I could run Malaware Ad-aware and that program was able to get rid of it! Took a whole afternoon though!
