I'm running a Pentium 4, Win XP Pro SP3, with Norton, and ZoneAlrm. I got infected by backdoor.Win32.Agent.afpk (I assume) since it got picked up on a full scan. Since then I was unable to start a command window or run regedit from the START-Run menu. Thunderbird doesn't talk to the server very well, though I can send email. Vuze/Azureus can talk to the tracker, but not to peers or seeds. Some downloads get blocked, like the BIOS update from Dell.

I ran BIOS update, ZoneAlarm, Registry Mechanic, MalwareByte, Dr. Web, Spybot and a couple others. Nothing seemed to make a difference, even if it found something. Someone suggested comboFix, so i ran it, and now I can get a command window and run regedit, but everything is still not well. If someone can tell me what to do from here, that would be greatly appreciated.

Uh oh, I think you got the Sub7 Infection. That means an unauthorized user is using your computer. Spying on you.
