I think that my PC has been infected as 2 days ago both IE7 and Google Chrome stpped connecting to the internet apart from when I go to the site fastmail.fm.
Luckily I also had firefox installed and am able to use this now but even though I removed and reintalled IE7 and tried IE8 it still will not connect to the internet. I have also noticed that itunes will also no longer connect.
Just before I lost connection a new site popped up inviting me to buy a safe web surfing tool so I shut everything down and restarted and that is when the problems started.

I have run Stpzilla and have Avast installed but neither has shown any problems so I am thinking of using ComboFix, is this a good idea?
