thanks for responding ! micksim - the most recent thing I installed ( on purpose, anyway ) is dexpot. Been running that for 2-3 months now and had no issues with the pc until last week. I was online when I noticed the erratic behaviour. The IE browser starting operating on it's own and in a matter of minutes I had two new icons on my desktop for "Whitesmoke Translater". AFter that, I started getting "Security Tool" popping up telling me my pc was infected and to give them money.
I used comboFix to be able to get rid of the Whitesmoke stuff, then had to use malwarebytes to get rid of Security Tool ( as far as I know ). I can connect to the internet, and I I had to use safe mode with networking to get comboFix and malwarebytes to function.
CryptoDan - I will try the memtest86+ and report back.
Thanks again for the help.
