thanks, amazingly I don't have transfer facilities available, will go and buy a memory stick if need be tomorrow. I've downloaded the relevant files to my desktop on this machine and then attached them fully and zipped to an e-mail. I can get to my yahoo mail in safe mode, with networking enabled, from the home pc.
I've been through the pc in safe mode and deleted a lot of the files mentioned and the MS Antivirus seems to be at abeyance at present. My problem remains though that it won't let me get to certain websites or action downloads that would provide a fix. My homepage keeps getting set to Softwarereferral.com and I get bounced to Virusremover2008.com or similar garbage sites.
The files I haven't deleted yet are the HKEY_ ones as I don't know where to look for the registry....is this easy to find? I feel that if I can actually get the download then I can deal from there. I have read through all of the solutions on here and it seems doable for me, but they do require the download. Even if you can just tell me how to stop IE from being redirected that would be great.....thanks.....Al
ps. this is my first experience of a virus, maybe I've been lucky, and as an offence I'm now viewing it in a CAPITAL manner!!!
