I have been reading a few threads and the info in hyjack this and i think that i have a serious problem.
My two main issues are:
Computer will "lock up". But it doesn't look like a systems failure. The cursor dissapears and the keyboard is unresponsive. My impression is that perhaps they are being deactivated allowing the computer to run in the background. Perhaps something akin to the "screenshot pranks" that we all love so dearly.
Also when clicking a google link the browser is redirected. however any address entered manually works fine and any cut and paste of the address from the google search will work fine.
A final and most confusing piece of information is that when i run my computer on wireless (as opposed to the t1 network) occasionally i will get a ton of explorer windows populating and being refused access by the wireless network. My fear is that on the hard connection it is not failing to get permission and these windows are being run without appearing to me.
I have taken the following steps to resolve:
I have run avast (now updated)
I have run malwar bytes (updated)
I have run ccleaner (updated)
I have run hijack this and created a log
I will post this log when you ask me "do you still need help?" which seems to be the prefered method.
I am running windows 7
