Yes I have tried system restore but it is still there.
Fruit bat, i have followed your link but during download a box apears saying "you can not rename combo-fix combo-fix[1].Try renaming using alpha numeric characters" then the if you click OK the box disapears & nothing happens.If you do not click on it the screen just hangs.
