I'm hoping someone will guide me through this process. I am running XP SP3 With Zone Alarm and AVG. After startup, I am initally able to connect to the internet with Firefox and IE, and then they both hang. Yesterday I went to an internet site that had Windows Antivirus 2008 download, and since I knew that that is a virus, closed my browser and immediately scanned with AVG. It found Trojan horse Agent_r.CX, and quaranteened it. I deleted all of my cookies and Temp Internet Files. Then when I would initiate IE7 or Firefox, it would open my home page, and hang after that. I scanned with Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes, and found nothing. I ran CWshredder as well. I downloaded HiJack This on another computer, so am ready to use that unless there are more steps to take. Grateful in advance.
