I think I have a virus, and it's making this screensaver thing which looks like bugs making blue holes in my screen appear randomly. I'm scanning with AVG Free and Spy Sweeper at the moment, but I want to know how to get rid of this screensaver. On my display settings, the screensaver is set to 'None'. Please help!

I ran AVG Free, Spybot: Search and Destroy and some other virus scanner and the problem seems to have stopped. It was probably a worm or a trojan or something...
