Contact the ISP to say you have set your e-mail programmes to not run, and that you need them to re-connect so that you can download programmes to correct the PC.

If you have an address book look for entries which should not be there.

When they reconnect you, please go here

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log to the malware forum
