Hey all,
I am new to the forums, and am at my end with this problem.

A few nights ago my computer was running fine. The next morning, I booted up and nothing worked. My tool bar had changed (it wasn't blue and rounded and a green start button, it was gray and square and depressing), my internet, which is hardwired couldn't find a connection, and none of my programs would work properly. I tried running itunes, which told my audio configuration had been changed and would not run. Any program I try to run, it tells me it has suffered an internal error and must shut down.

I run AVG free at every computer startup, and it is not reporting any problems. I've also run malewarebytes which hasn't done anything either. I tried to run system restore, but it won't allow that either. It gives me a message that says "System Restore is not able to protect your computer. Restart and try again."

Has anyone had this happen to them, or know what I can try. At this point, just knowing if it's a virus, or if something has been changed would be alot.
