hello, anyone?

Also, now no external devices are being recognised? I've run, avg, superantispyware and malwarebytes too and superantispyware found a few items but it's still not fixed the problems?

Hi, there are no restore points as id turned off system restore last week to scan for nasties. I tried cmd and then scannow, is that the same?

Hi, i did scannow last night but am doing it again right now. I see that i also got redirected to 'ebay' whilst clicking on one of your Google links/searches you privided me with. I have also got redirected when i have used Firefox/IE today too. Maybe an infection is to blame for both problems?

Come to think of it, last night i downloaded a perfectly legit (i thought?) programme called BDlot DVD ISO Master to copy a DVD i have. I used the 'convert to ISO' option and it created a winzip folder which i unzipped and it kept unzipping and wouldn't complete and filled up my hard drive, this is when i tried to delete the file and came across the problem with Windows Explorer!

Does this help please?

Sorry, what i meant was Malwarebytes did find a few things last night but i have restarted since and done more scans. Maybe do them (Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and AVG) in safe mode would help?
