Ah.... here's where the problem lies - Winfixer.
Please do both of the following before we start:
1. Please print these instructions as they might not be accessable later.
2. Save these instructions in word or notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found.
At the moment you may feel like you battling with your computer to keep it running smoothly, but doing the following things will help to get it back to how it was in a faster manner.
Please download VundoFix.exe
to your desktop.[list]
to run it.
[*]Put a check next to Run VundoFix as a task.
[*]You will receive a message saying vundofix will close and re-open in a minute or less. Click OK
[*]When VundoFix re-opens, click the Scan for Vundo
[*]Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo
[*]You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
[*]Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
[*]When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK
[*]Turn your computer back on.
[*]Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt
in your next reply.
Also, use Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware SE to check for further infections:

I've never heard of the program your friend used to remove Winfixer, so I don't think it removed all of your infection. Please try my cure instructions and DO NOT hesistate to post back for help, further questions, etc.
