I thought I had posted a message Thursday but don't see it so I will try this again.

I am running Vista Home Basic
Superanti spyware
HiJack This
Emsisoft Anti malware
AVG free virus

I have run these previous to finding this forum. I did save logs from Emsisoft, Malwarebytes, and a quarentine file from SUPERAnti spyware.

The first thing I noticed a few months back was that my yahoo mail sign in was being redirected. At the time I was in school for A+, Net+ and MCP. I checked with my teacher but didn't get any help. That is when I found all the tools I now use to clean and check for problems.

The email no longer redirects but I cannot open any jpg files. Error message states the location of the file and says "cannot be opened." It looks like the pictures are now attempting to open in Nero Photo snap viewer essentials. Nero is a CD/DVD copy/burn program.
At one point I could not open any browser windows in my profile but could on my kids profiles. I created a new admin profile and was successful in accessing the internet. I ran the different programs on this new profile and kids profile then was able to run in my profile at which time I could then open all browsers. I run IE9, Firefox and Google Chrome.
Jpg's are still not accessable.
