ok....through my task manager can i operate my computer somewhat, but for the most part this ordeal has reduced it to a really expensive paper weight. For about the past month ive noticed that my browser (firefox- but even IE) redirects me to all kinds of other sites some even before i finish typing the original url i was planning to attend. Most of the time its to a site that proclaims itself to be a windows virus scanner that begins to scan me without permission. I have been just xing out of it and it was simply a nuicense, but then my comp got slowere and slower and I found I had to click links several times to get them to work and some none at all. I got some "free trial" virus software to attempt removal(avg-MCaffe-PCtools) and durring my last attempt my comp just shut down and now all I see is wallpaper. No Icons no task bar....nothing. I try not to but I know my girlfriend torrents all day without regaurd for threats or malicious code of anykind and I should have watched her more closely so this is probably my fault....with that said if one of you could find it in your heart to help me out and possibly direct me to some good software to keep this from hppening again I would be in your debt for life.
