Hello, my laptop was worse off before I started looking at this site, but I still have malware issues. Just when i think i'm making progress another one or two pop up. So I guess I'm going to address each one individually if need be. I'm running Windows 7 professional on a Lenovo x61. I've recently begun accessing internet explorer via windows explorer instead of shortcut, which seems to help. Will be downloading the quarantine program you recommend in one of your removal guides.
