    I currently have many symptoms of a spyware infection on my computer. Also, when I start up the machine and get to my windows 2000 desktop a message appears from my task bar saying that 'your computer is infected with spyware and click here to download the most recent anti-spyware software'. Spyaxe was downloaded initially but I have since removed it since I didn't know if it was legit. I have downloaded Spybot S&D in addition to Spyware Blaster to try and take care of this but I still get that message everytime I startup. Then when I go to the internet my homepage has been changed to a anti-spyware website and I cannot change the homepage in my internet options. Then after 5-10 minutes on the internet the system locks up and www.syserror appears and flashes in the bottom lefthand corner of the screen. Is this a common problem? Do I need to install even more software to cleanup my machine? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
