I've noticed something that looks for me like a infection:
First, my ms outlook did not start at startup (it is in startup in start menu). I ran it manually but it stopped during a send/receive process.
Then I've noticed that there is no eset nod32 antivirus icon in tray.
So i went to safeboot, and manually turn on nod32 system scan. After 5 hours of scanning i've rebooted the computer, but nothing changed. When i tried do search for sollution it appeared that i can't open websites (e.g. google ) - they are starting to load but don't appear. On other computer I've checked the processes runned on my machine and one that could be suspicious - igfxpers.exe (according to bleepingcomputer knowledge base) I turned off from msconfig / run. After a reboot Outlook started like it should, but nod32 - not.
I wanted to manually inspect my registry but regedit and cmd don't launch.
Possible source of infection:
Yesterday, I've tried to enter one comapny's website. google chrome gave me a warning that this site could be dangerous. Before calling to that company with warning, I've wanted to ensure that the warning is real, and I tried to enter that site from google search in Firefox - there was no warning this time. I know some of that kind of threats so i checked the source of website but there was no suspicious (as for me ;)) code - lately I've been founding some weird scripts at the end of source, sometimes hidden in ASCII (%23 %54 and so on).
Please help - It's my work computer!
OS: Win XP Pro SP3
Update: I'm able to manually run nod32 in normal mode
