Right, best get down to business I guess.
My 2 immediate problems are:
An AVG Resident Shield alert:
When I try to connect to the internet (3G dongle) a pop up appears that reads:
Connection not possible. Please close the application, remove the modem, re-insert the modem, and restart the application.
Win32 Exception( 3,221,225,477): Access Violation, In thread: 0x00000F54
I use AVG and windows XP firewall (though only activated today and I've been online for months) rkill and MBAM
I have had a few xp virus (xp internet security, xp defender etc.) attacks over the last few weeks & each one was healed using rkill & MBAM (though I suspect I've not fully killed them). I've also used AVG daily and it's found lots of trojans and a few other things. Then last night while online PC screen went blue and since then problems 1 & 2 (above) have since happened & PC has been slow & I've had trouble getting programs to work & trouble connecting to the internet (I somehow got connected after much reebooting and PC freezing and haven't dared go offline since).
Of steps 1-9 of your malware prep guide I've only done no's 3, 4, 5 & 7 I'm afraid (I want to back up but have no spare drives or CD-R's at present ((hopefully CD-R's tomorrow))). I'm not sure about doing the others if I don't need to. If you need me to to do them all please let me know.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
