Hi ryzies.

If you are unsafe, then I suggest you to do a online scan.

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report

If the scan comes back clean, try the fix in kellys-korner, Tweaks and Tips, scroll to Line 249. Set Default XP Font Back to Tahoma.

Before editing the Registry, always be sure to back it up first.
Backing up the Registry.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
