Well after years of simply referring to the site for answers, I now need help personally. SO, here goes. I can't run IE. It will open but only long enough to freeze. I have the same problem with Windows Media Player. Also, I can not open Spy Sweeper. I can open Firefox, real player, Malwarebytes, AVG. I have checked for all kinds of viruses etc. I've found nothing. I CAN run all programs in safe mode. I haven't received any error messages. I'm at a loss.

I suggest assuming that you are infected...until proven otherwise.

I would post at BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

Care to share your solution?

Sorry we couldn't suggest the proper specific cure for your situation, but we abide by the law of averages. Some successes, some failures.
