thanks.. as a lot of time has now passed I decided to just reinstall windows..
Yes maybe the best choice.
Anyway, I will give some instructions to keep your computer safe.
Please do eight steps:Step 1: Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.
This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode
and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are
currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.Step 3: Use an AntiVirus Software
It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal ResourcesStep 4: Update your AntiVirus Software
It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. Step 5: Use a Firewall
I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in it is default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:Understanding and Using FirewallsStep 6: Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently
It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com
regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.Step 7: Install an Anti Spyware software
It is very important to be safe. Look this list and choose one to install:Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal ResourcesStep 8: Update all these programs regularly
Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT
be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically. Glad I was able to help and if there any other problems related to your computer please feel free to post them in the appropriate forum.
