Hi guys,

So I got that damn AV care virus and I tried to remove all the program files and all that and it's no longer on the desktop or popping up but it seems to have had a lasting effect on my computer, nonetheless.

My mozilla is acting weird, sometimes i will click on a page after i searched a subject in google and it'll redirect me to various different random search pages where I have to click on the link I want through that page.

Secondly, I can't open any virus programs, my hotmail in Mozilla, or seem to be able to run any .exe files I have tried to download in order to help my computer. Malware Antibytes program in particular will not open and I desperately want to use it in order to scan my system.

Oh and not sure if this is relevant but on start up my computer keeps mentioning checking a hard drive disk, FAT32 or something like that...

Please help!

Computer: HP Pavilion dv1000
Operating system: Windows XP
