Well, I was just browsing through a few google image resutlts, and after clicking on one I was redirected to a web page with dialog pop-up saying my pc was infected. I quickly closed the window with task manager, but I'm fairly certain I got infected anyway. I then shut down the computer in panic and disconnected the network adapter.

Some time later, I turned back on the computer in safe mode and opened avast antivirus, whereupon it told me I was unsecured (I tried reenabling the protection, but to no avail). I attempted a scan, but avast came up with an error message saying: "Unable to start scan. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper"

I also checked the Windows Security Center, and it told me the service was turned off. I tried again to turn it on but another error message appeared stating "The Windows Security Center service can't be started."

Anyway, since the incident I haven't been game enough to reconnect my computer to the network, so I have no idea what will happen once I reconnect. I'm actually using the Wii's Internet Channel to type this message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
