This one is kinda complicated. I am new to BleepingComputer, a friend suggested it. I have a Dell Inspiron w/ Windows XP on it. Somehow, when I don't directly type in the URL (say if I go to a search engine) the link that I click directs me away from my search to a random webpage. I could look up anything but I always get redirect on all the web browsers I have. Also, when I right click on the desktop to try and change my display properties, I no longer have the "Desktop" tab available, so I cannot change my background picture or the screen saver. I ran a virus scan and about 9 trojan viruses were detected and cleaned. I am getting another issue as well, something to do with the SVCHost file in my registry. I will go into the processes in my task manager and there is always about 7 SVCHost files running, when I try to end the process my computer prompts me and says it is automatically going to shut itself down within 30 seconds and it begins the countdown. Also, the SVCHost files reappear after I end the process. I tried to go into my registry and delete the file from it but the same problem happens, the computer auto-shuts down. Am I in trouble here, should I just recover the computer and back up my files, or is the repairable? One last thing, I tried to restore to a previous date but when I click "next" in the restore window it won't begin the restore. If at all can you help? Even if I need to recover the computer can you somehow explain to me why something like this would happen?
I appreciate any help! Thank You sooo much!
