Hi rufus, welcome to GTG! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Herein lies the problem. Cant click onto the link you suggested. It puts up a box, but never connects to the sight. Cant even go to the chat site here, it does the same thing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can you download Hijack This to a floppy disk on another system? Then run it on your system and paste the log.
