Thanks for your reply. I'm not very computer savvy. What does that mean, AII? Can they diagnose remotely? Can you clarify what you mean?
In answer to your question, maybe not clean. The past 3 days have just been a nightmare. I eventually downloaded Spyware Doctor with Virus Protection and every time I run it it picks up dozens of infections and several threats. Even right after I run it, I'm still getting fake maleware warnings (like Spyware 2010) and getting redirected to bullbleep marketing sites out of my Yahoo search results.
I really don't know what's going on. I feel that everything is wonky.
BTW, until this all started I had Microsoft SEcurity Essentials and MalewareBytes. I tried to remove both of them when I put in Spyware Doctor, so I wouldn't have more than one security system. But I keep getting alerts saying that I still have a fragment of MSE. This keeps me from removing it completely (or downloading it anew if I wanted to).
And of course everything is slow and I'm still in safemode. It's all rather baffling. Sorry for the long reply! Thanks greatly for any help.
