Hello to you all,

My laptop which runs xp has started to display a fake windows firewall message which asks me to enable protection against "Win32.Brontok". The message is a fake and now my internet explorer page wont open.

I have followed the steps requested and as such have posted to log below.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
