So the basis of my problem is that none of my antispyware programs (Ad-aware, Spybot, Superanti spyware) will connect when i choose to update them. Whats also strange is that when i try to visit their homepages, such as http://www.safer-networking.org/ for Spybot, it will say server not found. I tried downloading Malware bytes, but their website is also being blocked from my access. I have also did a scan with spybot and superantispyware with their old definitions ( 11/09) and the only thing they returned were some tracking cookies.

Now heres where i come to believe im infected with something. Every time i restart my computer Sygate firewall tells me that is exe. called lvkusftay.exe is trying to connect to some website called soft-metal-group. Apparently its trying to install some bogus antivirus program.

Im currently running Windows Xp with SP3. If you guys have any idea on whats up or need any more info feel free to ask me.

*EDIT* I have also noticed that my clock has changed from normal time to military time.
