I haven't gotten my logs checked by any HJT people, but through a rough "self-check" I think they were OK
The computer is XP
I am running Avira AntiVir and MalwareBytes [the constant protection thing]
I'm not very sure how to check for those [sorry] but I haven't installed any new hardware/drivers recently
+ update : I just turned on my PC a few minutes ago, and it appeared a fake Virus scanner has been installed onto my PC [called System security 2009]. I am now not able to run any programs including task manager, only windows explorer. I think this problem has suddenly gotten much worse.
EDIT: 2nd update: following some online advice, managed to remove System Security 2009!
Now scanning w/ Avira AntiVir to make sure of complete removal.
Thanks for your help,
