Hi. I'm like 8 hours into panic on my main home system. It's a 'Windows XP Media Center Edition' box, and I don't know what happened - but it was bad. A couple of weird icons showed up on my desktop this morning - so I ran a virus scan (McAfee) and it found and removed Dialer-257. But ever since then, opening IE takes me to some weird 'needupdate.com' website and wants me to click on all kinds of stuff. I've used AdAware, SpyBot S&D and of course McAffee trying to fix it - but it's still kickin' me in the butt.

I guess I'll post my log in a bit. I wanted to say hi, first of all. Not to mention, if I mess up this post I can chalk it up to a learning experience.
