Well, you can only connect to the interent to download if you're running XP Pro on DSL, I believe. There may be other specific OS's/setups that can accomplish this, but it makes sense to do all your downloading before going into safe mode. It is always better to run the apps after they have been installed and updated in safe mode tho.
while I am in safe mode also, do I download and run A2 and Ewido.
Each logon (user) has its own settings which is what commonly gets hijacked. I'm not sure about AVG, but most antiviruses will scan and clean all logons. However, it's very common that they won't clean everything. HijackThis is used in that case, and yes it should be used last. And it is specific to each logon. In other words, user Charlie may be infected while user Sue may not be. Adaware & ewido I believe does detect and clean globally--I'm not sure about Spybot and A2. I would suggest running at least one of these scans while logged into each account.
If I am using XP and there are different users, do I need to run Sysclean, Spybot and Adaware (all from the Safe Mode I assume?) for EACH of the users or can I do it once under my screen name only.
The fate of all mankind, I see
Is in the hands of fools
