I seem to have gotten myself infected. Not sure how I am going to get the one topic one porblem one post thing nailed down since all of this has started at once. IE randomly locks up. IE requires several taps of the icon before it opens and then in task manager there are several instances open although only one window and one tab are open and visible. Windows media player has been vaporized from my system, icon and all. any attempt to open WMP associated files results in the "choose program to open this file" window. I cannot uninstall programs from the control panel. Tried to update IE last night and it failed to install 3 times w/o explanation. Ran SAS and MBAM over the weekend, several items were removed. AVG free caught a trojan and removed it (or so I thought). I ran combofix after reading about it on another forum, but it didn't do anything. Just opened and then closed. Don't really know where to go from here. Thanks.
