The HJT log doesn't yield anything - the same 4 or 5 entries I've always had and they're all verified legit.
MalwareBytes did not detect anything even on full scan.
Spybot S&D totally updated did not detect anything.
Ran VundoFix and VirtumondeBeGone - Nothing.
IE shuts down or redirects when I try to go to anti-virus sites (even bleepingcomputer) - It usually takes me to some totally unrelated sites like womansday.com, bankingmyway.com, freestuff.com, etc.
Applications will randomly shut down.
Trying to use cmd.exe usually restarts explorer.exe and I lose most or all of running programs.
Windows Update freezes at the screen where it tries to find out what version of software I am using.
The DDS.scr does not run successfully - I just see a cmd box quickly open and disappear. I have ran the program successfully on other computers.
Any direction and/or help much appreciated.
