Hi guys. I am new to the forum and self-described as "purposely computer illiterate." Well now I regret this lack of effort....

I have a bunch of spy/malware infections. It started as a couple of google redirects and then my Avast began incessantly blocking malicious URLs, mostly involving csrss.exe zonedg.com and versions of simpsoncatalog.com. Then I would get a message about an exe that did not exist or was (fake?) messing up my registry. Then the virus set up a fake? (at least unauthorized) proxy to the internet. I set the computer back to a few days before the problems...to no avail. Then I ran spybot search and destroy and it found nothing; HOWEVER, I watched the scan and wrote down a plethora of "programs" I did not recognize including porn video cam stuff, windows32 stuff...I googled them on the laptop and found that all of them were some trojan spyware you get from just surfing and unsubcsribing to spam. I suspect my MIL who stayed with us had something to do with all the casino crap that came up :( One of the descriptions was something that acts as a backdoor and lets in other viruses!!! ARRRGH!
I have Vista. Note: this mysteriously started happening when I called Sprint for help with my phone- that day my yahoomail security was compromised and the computer started acting up. (unrelated? but I heard that smart phones are notoriously easy to hack?)
TIA for any advice!
I also called avast but declined them remotely checking my computer-
plus I know I need to download the new JAVA but I can't find the button to do so offline
I turned off the proxy...but I know there is trouble in there!
