Hi all,

I think I must have virus/spyware of some kind. Any link I click from google eventually gets redirected to a shopica.com site. Also I was earlier unable to access any website that required a login. (Flybe, Hotmail, Microsoft Exchange, Bebo etc). I thought this was odd so decided to run Live Update (for Norton Internet Security 2005) and then full system scan. When I got in it sasid 'Auto-Protect' was turned off under Anti-virus tab and it will not let me turn it back on. It also says error opposite virus definitions. I did a full system scan, with updated definitions etc, on 28/02/2009.

I have run Norton full system scan, Window's defender scan and eset.com online scan but they don't pick anything up. I have tried to download Spybot, Super AntiSpyware and Stopzilla. The file downloads but it won't let me run it. Computer is painfully slow too.

Any hep you have would be good.

Thanks very much
