Two nights ago I got some popups on firefox when I accidentally clicked on a bad link that got by normal warnings. Though usually nothing goes by I thought nothing of it. My laptop then died and I went to bed. Then trouble started yesterday morning when I booted up my pc. I imediately got multiple error messages ranging from not being able to start up my sidebar to bluetooth error. Then, I clicked on firefox which was running very slow and unable to download anything. So I thought since I run a beta version I would just uninstall and download the regular copy on IE. So I uninstall and now I realize IE gives an error "unable to download from (insert site here) unable to open this internet site" error no matter what I download. Also, every video site just has black boxes where videos should be. Sites that use flash also appear to be loading very slow and not loading the flash. I have ran AVG Antivirus which was only able to work after starting the computer in safe mode but now is working on regular mode. Nothing was found. I also tried to do a system restore to multipe points but they all ended up saying that the restore failed but gave little detail. Help would be greatly appreciated! thanks.
