However, yesterday I also picked up the antivirus Gold infection and some associated malware like 180search assistant, homesearch assistant. The problem now is that though I can start the computer and get to the desktop, I cannot access My Computer, My documents, or Windows explorer. I also can't access internet explorer. Every time I go to open any of these I get the message 'Iexplore.exe has created errors and will be closed. you will need to restart the programme.. An error log is being created.'
I am happy to download files you suggest from another computer and put them on a USB drive but don't know how I will access them if I can't get into one of the above programmes. Does 'Hijackthis' allow me to do this somehow? Or is this difficulty with starting My Computer etc likely to be unrelated to the malware?Any help you can give will be much appreciated. Many thanks
