I first noticed iexplorer.exe running in the background while checking the task manager. I don't know how long its been there, but I've noticed lots of pop-ups. I've also had the wave portion of my audio control lowered all the way to zero.
I tried running the preparation steps that was outlined in this forum and I already ran into a few problems.
1) I get a warning that says I don't have permissions to run DDR.scr. I even downloaded different versions of it, but nothing changes. I also tested out installers for other programs (ccleaner, malwarebytes, hijackthis, etc) and I got the same message. I have these programs installed already though so I can still use them if needed.
2) I ran gmer.exe and got one log out of it. I tried running it again today and I got a blue screen before my computer restarted.
Hopefully you guys can help.
I didn't do anything, but iexplore.exe isn't running in the background anymore.
Also, I lost control of my mouse temporarily (kinda spazzed around the screen) before it shut itself off. I don't know what triggered it.
All other problems are still there (i.e. I can't install any additional programs)
