Hi. Longtime reader of this site, first time posting.

So I had a virus last week. I ran Malware antibytes and got rid of it. Ever since then though whenever I click on 'browse' the mouse icon will flicker to a hour glass and nothing will happen. I tried many different sites with a browse button (photobucket, iamageshack, etc). Nothing works. I also can't use "save image as...". Same result.

It gets weird here. It happens all the time in firefox (my main browser) but half the time it will work in google chrome. So it must be a windows issue, right? Paint is also acting weird now. Half the time when I open it I can draw for a few seconds before it crashes. I've ran malware anti bytes again and it found 4 more files and removed them. Should I run another san, or try a different program such as Avast!?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
