OK, so i recently had a problem with aurora and lots of spyware and trojans. i did all the things that were specified in the "hijack this" thing.... i scanned with a few different scanners and finally was recieving no more pop ups. i used the "clean up" program also. finally i did windows up date, and it asked me to restart. i did that, and left the computer for a few hours. i came back and the color and resolution are both all weird. like it has the appearance of being in safe mode... except its not. i restarted and hit "restart normally" and all... and its still like this. i wish i could me more descriptive... but yeah. if neccessary i'll do a screen shot. please any help would be amazing.

Howdy:

What does Everest report your video card to be (make and model)..

Is it integrated into the motherboard or a separate card??
