Warning! Spyware threat has been detected on your pc.

This ""warning"" has shown up as my wallpaper. I get constant ads for AntispyStorm, along with McAfee VirusScan ""trojan found and cleaned"" alarms for the file ""C:\windows\winh32.exe"", which is infected by ""Generic AdClicker.h"" trojan. This won't go away. I don't understand how my Internet Security Suite 2006 can't get rid of this or how it could have gotten in in the first place. If this isn't resolved quickly I will have to switch to someone elses product...

RE: Warning! Spyware threat has been detected on your pc.

Also, McAfee Virus Scan will come up every once in a while with the same message:

The file "C:\windows\winh32.exe" was infected by the "Generic AdClicker.h" trojan and has been deleted to complete the Clean process.

Unfortunately, it seems to come back every once in a while...

In safe mode double click on SmitFraud and select option 2,after running Smitfraud run AVG(complete system scan),when AVG has finished scanning remember to click on Apply All Actions if anything is found,then boot back into normal mode.

Why are you asking them to run those tools when SFF and AVG should take care of the problem.
You advise is bare at best.
