I think I have a rootkit installed, because at first the usual SE2010 or security malware was popping up, but after I tried MBAM I got rid of that; doesn't seem to be reappearing. However, now my system is acting strange, some programs won't open and the start bar at the bottom of the screen has been reverting to the classic look without me changing it. I am running XP Media Center Edition, and have done the prequisite guide. I am also relatively new to this, so I probably won't know any of the more technical terms or anything like that. Any help would be appreciated, as I've tried everything I know and it does not seem to be working. Thanks in advance!
