The story so far:
Bought the laptop second hand 2 days ago.
Sony Vaio with Vista Home basic on board.
I loaded AVG and went browsing.
Last night I clicked on a link from the Google search results and ended up somewhere completely different.
This morning there are 2 files on my desktop called commonpriv.log.lock

Googling the 2 issues brought me to you.

Please could you advise what steps I need to take?

John

I have followed the pre Combofix instructions and have the DDS and GMER/ark logs and will send them if you like, but after running DDS & GMER it specified which virus I had (Warning: possible TDL3 rootkit infection) and goggled that.
I found http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684 and ran it and it worked.

So thank you very much for a brilliant site, sorr y I was not patient enough to wait, but had to hand the laptop back to non technical friend.
