Before: It started yesterday when I couldn't open any program/file but web browsers without a popup warning me that it was infected and asking "Yes/No" would I like to do something about it (I never hit yes.) I've had a similar issue before but it was accompanied by all kinds of fake antivirus popups and software. After running a quick scan with mbam, that problem went away but I realized I hadn't installed any antivirus software since my last xp reinstall so I got Avast.

Now: Maybe 3 or 4 times total since yesterday I have had a google.com/webhp search page randomly pop up. Not enough to be annoying but must still be a sign of an underlying problem from what I have read. Also, an Avast full system scan gives me these results:

Run time: 0:59:24
Tested files: 187701
Tested folders: 17893
Amount of data tested: 467.3 GB
Infected files: 2343

At first glance this is pretty scary but the vast majority of the files it lists should be completely safe. Also, every single one is either a .htm or .html file and listed as Threat: VBS:ExeDropper-gen [Trj].

All in all I'm really not experience any problems directly but this is really something I want to look into and hopefully get fixed.
