My computer was found to have the Sasser and Win32 worms on it. I've gotten rid of/fixed most of the problems (disabled Task Manager/Run/Folder Options/regedit as well as blocked start site and lost sound)...

Unfortunately I can't find a way to view secure websites any longer (only realised because I couldn't get into gmail - after the issue with the worms). Also, firefox is theoretically disabled by my firewall and msn messenger no longer run (these may be connected, though - regardless, these are problems I can deal with having but I need secure websites back).

I had previously installed AVGold, then uninstalled it - some site has mentioned a connection between these two events but no solution.

Also, in Task Manager, svchost.exe is running at least 5 times, in many different folders, and is not affected by 'end now' - it merely restarts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. --

--- umm, you can delete this topic - I buggerized around for a few hours more and I've got it all sorted now.

Now that you're free from malware, please follow these simple steps to decrease the likelihood of getting re-infected again:

Set your system to not show all files.
Navigate to Start | My Computer | Tools | Folder Options.
Select the View tab. Under the "Hidden Files and Folders" heading, select "Show hidden files and folders".
Check: Hide file extensions for known file types
Check the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.

Please navigate to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.
Either enable 'Automatic Updates' under Start | Control Panel | Automatic Updates, or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:
Ad-Aware SE
A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer may be found here.
Spybot-Search & Destroy
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found here. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer may be found here.
Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

Please also read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
