It's a subject which interests me greatly and one which I have spent many hours reading about. I have also had call to use a number of specialist forums over the years to help clean up PC's of friends and family.

Without wishing to offend anyone, I have concluded that one such site stands out head and shoulders above the rest. If you want excellent and timely assistance, don't hesitate to register at click here and post your problem on the English Help board.

It's a German site and if you'll pardon the stereotype, it displays typical German efficiency. Simply superb.

I would post your problem to a dedicated forum such as the one in the link, changeing system files and registry entries if done wrongly may do more harm than good...

There's a number of issues here. First off you've acquired an infection. Secondly, by implication, there may be other nasties on your PC which aren't quite so evident but which may be sapping resources and effectively slowing down your PC or may be dialling 'home' and breaching your privacy.

You need to take the opportunity to have your PC checked out and cleaned and to take expert advice on how to prevent a recurrence. I don't want to make this thing sound overly complicated coz it isn't. But by the same token, what the experts do is not 'smoke and mirrors' stuff but helps get you back on the right foot by putting your PC in good health and hopefully, by following good practice, keeping it there.

It's clearly your choice on what to do next...but ponder this, if your car needed attention, you'd hopefully take it to a reputable mechanic and not mess about with a half baked strategy devised by the local handy man.

Again, no offence to the good folk on here, but PC security is imo a whole field in it's own right and should be left to those guys who are attending to it day in and day out.
