Something is redirecting my internet explorer searches, and I'm also having a couple other obvious indications of malware/virus activity:
--Can't access Task Manager through Ctrl-Alt-Delete (dialogue box says "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator")
--Youporn/Nudetube icons have appeared on my desktop
--Text size in IE7 window is constantly expanding without command, and my mouse pointer behaves erratically (note: I use a wireless Logitech keyboard/mouse combo, and the mouse has zoom controls on it which I suspect might have been hijacked)
--Keyboard appears to have been remapped. When I try to type "c:\windows\system32", for example, it comes out looking like "C|/WnD;s").
I admit, after trying against the advice of these instructions I started running ComboFix. CPU crashed and gave me "BAD_POOL_CALLER" error on the blue screen of death.
I run WinXP SP3 on a Dell Precision 670, and use McAffee. I'd already run AdAware, but that didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions?
Thanks, I really appreciate the help!
