A friend of mine was hit by a nasty virus or something.
* Some of the fonts are messed up (in both english, and our language).
* I couldn't manage to install Mcafee Antivirus, or open up Norton Anti-virus (even though I was able to install other programs...it's like the virus blocked those two specifically).
* I couldn't open regedit.exe (I bypassed that with hijack this).
* An dialogue pops-up saying a program is trying to make a connection to the internet ( I disabled the connection for the time being).
This comes up twice, once saying that it's trying to access: venom.anarchyonline.net
And once it says that b.5toaformosa.com is the name of the program.

I already went through Ad-aware (which found and deleted 193 things), and CSWshredder, and stinger, and About:blank. Hijackthis (I deleted everything from the registry-Run).. But this thing just won't go away.

I managed to connect to the internet, but could only open google.com. Other sites won't budge.

This is the weirdest thing I've ever encountered...is anyone familiar with any of this?

Thanks in advance,
