I have officially lost my mind over this! Please HELP!
I have restored my computer back to factory condition several times-from the recovery console that HP has given me of course, downloaded all of my updates for Vista, running McAfee total protection, malwarebytes, and several more to find out what is going on. I have downloaded IE8 but I use Mozilla for the majority of the time.

Here are the issues so far:
-Redirecting constantly(esp. ebay...ads have been opted out of, yahoo opted out, and called several times) Used Adblock with Mozilla and Noscript-but they are still redirecting to sites such as: ad.yieldmanager, doubleclick, admdt.com, omniture, and trust me...tons more-no matter what I use!
-Networking, my son is a big gamer and it seems when he is online...my programs don't run or my computer automatically goes to LOCAL ONLY access if away from it-but in LOCAL it runs better-seems like the programs run better?
-Flash cookies corrupted...when I uninstall Adobe-seems like the cookies are "better" but I need a flash program to run for Ebay...and I have used the Adobe settings manager to delete the bad sites daily.
-Have to disable user account control (UAC) in order for all of my programs to work
-Seems that the majority are from roaming applications?
-This is a touchsmart-sometimes penflicks will just start doing it's own thing...ugh!

Please let me know what this could be. The computer seems to be fine until I hit the "myebay" page or facebook...or of course my son is gaming again! Ugh!

Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:
