Don't mean to bump, but was just looking through some past scan logs from Microsoft Security Essentials, and the last time it picked up on something was a few weeks ago:
Around the same time I had that whole fake Spyware thing going on with massive pop-ups and fake Spyware alerts, all which did quite some damage at the time.
I assumed I got rid of everything...but is it possible one of these 3 problems are now causing the bigger problem of making my computer practically inoperable?
It's been 2.5 weeks and I still cannot access the internet, even when physically wired to it. And I can barely run anything, and it still takes hours to open anything.
I use the computer for my graphic design freelance business and REALLY need access to my files and such. I've already missed tons of deadlines and opportunities. This is killing me! And my back up computer, which I am using now, has some SERIOUS scrolling/lack of pointer control issues so even typing THIS is a huge hassle.
