I can ONLY access IE8 (a few times it didnt load, until I rebooted). Firefox doesnt load. Thunderbird (email) doesnt load. The game Dungeons & Dragons Online doesnt load. All security software WAS able to download most recent updates.

Last month, my software found (in this order):


Spysweeper with Antivirus,

iobit 360:

Avira Personal

pck/armadillo (2 locations)

All have supposedly been quarantined and deleted, ExtremeBoy from the HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal section said I was clean from malware, and recommended me post here.

But, I still cant access anything. HELP!!

Here's my original topic so you can review what has been done so far with Extremeboy:

Why don't you uninstal/reinstall? Doing that in Add Remove Programs won't lose you saved Bookmarks.
At least it didn't in my case
