Hi everyone,
I have a lenovo ideapad s10 with windows XP. Yesterday, my computer was running very slow so I went to task manager and killed some of the processes( on hindsight, I should not have)..the problem started like this: I would google something and when I clicked on the link, it would always redirect me to some weird pages. I had the Avg free edition version 9.0.872
So when I proceeded to scan my computer for infections, I got the pop up and this threat detection in the virus vault:

file name: c:\windows\system32\drivers\IPSec.sys
threat name: virus identified Win32/Patched.DX
Object type: file
sdk type: core
result: object is white-listed(critical/system file that should not be removed)

moreover, now I cannot connect to the Internet. Additionally, OneKeyRecovery feature does not work. When I press the button (with computer turned off) , it simply turns it on..without the recovery options..

Please help!
