OK, thanks. I appreciate your patience. Believe it or not, I actually do have some idea of what I am doing with computers. I build my own, but I am clueless on malware and weak on networking issues. But give me time and I can figure out most things.

OK, well I guess that cinches it. After restarting it came up with a System Restore window that says:

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.
Details:
System Restore failed while scanning the file system on the drive C:\ The drive might be corrupt. You might want to retry System Restore after running chkdisk /r on this disk. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070571)

So still say it's fried?

Tried again with a different restore point and got the BSOD. I hate viruses.

Yes it did. I just have to figure out and take the time to save iTunes files etc, for the kids so they don't lose it all. Was hoping to avoid that, oh well.

OK, I will have to do that later. I have to get a disk to backup some data first. Reinstalling Windows will erase all the files correct?
