Well, It all started when I decided to do an update for my windows xp system. My PC started acting up but I could not and didn't want to think I caught something while downloading security updates for windows xp.
So I went about my business and decided to download some games from a site called
Game Top.com My PC started acting even weirder so in order to get some help I posted :

I got great help and was advised to download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and run a quick scan.
Which I did and found out 1 Reg key was infected removed it yada yada.... as you can see in the url above. I also deleted the downloaded games etc...
I'm in the clear I thought just to find my pc becoming slower online and off line, always busy full action as if it wants to take off , although I'm not even behind it.
I trust my AVG 8 will keep me protected, but can't take the long wait when I want to check something online...
So I decided to check the tutorial: Using Ad-Aware 2007 Free to remove Spyware & Hijackers from Your Computer
by Bleeping Computer on 4th of Apr 2004
and download it (Because you guys know your stuff).
It's called Ad-Aware Free, because it didn't have the same name I hesitated a little but decided still to do it because i wanted to get rid of my PC's slowness. The site directed me to mirror download site cnet Download.com.
Where I was greeted with Welcome Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition users. I downloaded the Anniversary Edition and installed it and wanted to restart my PC because that's what it wanted me to do.
Now that's where my PC refused to do as it was ordered to. So I clicked it again and it refused again...
I decided to restart it but NO, I wanted to turn it of but NO it closed all the programs that were open except for the Ad Aware finished installing page.
So I unplugged it (I know bad bad me not good for the PC) and turned it back on.
Only to find that even after 5 times double clicking on the Ad-Aware Icon it still does not want to run the removal tool.
Now how deep in it am I????
What's up with my PC??
It does everything else: opens ,closes programs, goes online (not as fats as it should),
BUT it doesn't want to start the removal tools or turn off when I turn it off.
I hope I'm at the right spot, Please help!!!
