As stated things won't work. My computer may "act" normal for a while, but then things go wrong. Winamp doesn't work, websties won't display correctly at times. I can't clear my DNS cache for some reason. And dxdiag crashes on DirectShow. Games work. As do chat programs, except for skype, which seems to make everything break down instantly.

I have ran Adaware, SSD, Viruschecks, registry cleaners, just about everything imaginable.

I installed Daemon tools around the time things started go wrong and I noticed it was bundled with spyware, so i removed it and the spyware, but it seems to have done something to my machine. I have installed the latest drivers for everything essential. I suspect a registry screwup somewhere but it might be something simpler. I don't know what kinds of rootkits there are out there but it isn't starforce, though it produced similar errors when it was on my computer.

I'm running:

AMD Sempron 2800+ (overclocked to 2,00GHz but reverting made no difference)
1024mb ram
ATI X800 GTO 256mb
Windows XP SP2

I'm in complete despair here and I've been agonizing with this for the last month or so. It seemed to happen overnight, regardless of any hardware settings.

I will finish this post off with a HijackThis log incase it is needed

New things have come up now.

A ) I cannot log into MSN
B ) I cannot log into VLB which is something I enjoy playing
C ) I cannot see any network connections. Infact the folder is empty. It seems though I HAVE no internet connections whatsoever, clearly this is not the case. For I am posting this from the very same computer. This is killing me.

EDIT: I could not refresh DNS settings before this either.
