I posted this a few weeks ago to this forum, it was moved to the Security forum and Gringo_pr ran me through his tests and verified that my computer does not have any malware on it. He recommended I bring this back to this forum in the hopes that you might be able to help me. Here is the link to the original topic and here is the link to the topic to the logs that Gringo_pr had me do. There is a screenshot I attached to the second topic (second link) which illustrates what I'm talking about. I would upload it here but I am almost out of my global attachment quota.
For the sake of having all the text on a single topic, I will copy the first topic's text here:
On Wednesday I acquired a lovely computer virus that would, on some timer I could not determine, say "Congratulations, you've won!" through my speakers. Originally, my firewall/virus scanner (Norton 360) blocked one attempt but it obviously missed a few more. After realizing I was infected, I closed all my windows and ran a full system check. Despite still having the audio coming through my speakers (and when I Ctrl+Alt+Delete'd, I could see about 10,000 windows of Internet Explorer [I know, it's a bleep browswer but it's what I've used for ages] that were not visible from my desktop), Norton said my computer was clean.
I then google'd the issue, read from various websites to try running different scanners, and ultimately went for Spybot. Spybot 'caught' the virus and got rid of it (yay!). However, now, I have a different delima. After ridding the computer of the virus, -every- -single- button has the little picture of the red X (does this have a name?). While I can click on the button as if it were there and have it redirect me to wherever it goes, I cannot see anything.
I feel I am doing a poor job of explaining this but I am not sure I can do any better. If I were more tech savvy, I'd take a screen shot and upload it to imgur to show you guys what I have going on. However, I can barely navigate the web as it is now, not having visible buttons and such.
I've ran both Spybot & Norton a few times each since with no avail. Reboot didn't work. Going into Tools -> Advanced and fooling around in there with various things that other websites said to try didn't work. Hell, for funzies, I even tried to do a system restore to see if that would fix it. Interestingly enough, whatever 'this' is, seems to be preventing my system from doing a clean restore.
Again, I'd like to reiterate that, per gringo_pr's efforts and awesome help, my computer does not appear to have any malware on it. Furthermore, there is no virus. This appears to be something that was altered while the machine was infected but I am only speculating. Any help would be grately appreciated.
