Mods, sorry for posting this again, but i'm getting no help in the other forum.

My computer is getting spammed by a "virus" called "sexpatriot". It's replacing my web browser and inserting files and web pages into my favorites.

I have deleted cookies, history and temp files. I have also downloaded Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware 6.0 and Stinger. None seem to work on this virus. After restarting the computer, my web browser changes back to "sexpatriot" from Yahoo and the files are reinserted.

How can I stop this? I'm getting tired of looking at dog & sheep sex every time I click to another site.
