I am on a different computer to post this 1st of all because my home computer has a script I cannot read.I restarted it last night and the blue welcome screen had a weird script,not the normal welcome.My desktop icons all have messed up script below them and when I try to type something it types in some messed up script.I tried to restore,did not help but I do get an error from Mc Afee that
reads as follows: A Suspicious Script Has Been Detected! The file C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\rstrui.exe contains suspicious scripting activity and has been stopped. I don't know what to do.The last thing that happened before this occured was an update was auto installed for McAfee spamkiller which I doubt had anything to do with this.I don't recall opening up any suspicious e mails either.I went in to ctr/alt/delete and found rstrui.exe running abd stopped it which did not help.I also disabled all mc afee products and that did not help either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated <_< :D

Hi Im fuzzy. 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.
