Ok, last Monday, someone on my aim list sent me this link and it was said to be a picture. And like the retard I am, I clicked it and it downloaded something to my computer, and then spammed my aim list and sent it to everyone that was listed online. I don't know exactly what it was that was downloaded to my computer, and my computer seemed fine until now.

When I returned from being out of town over the weekend, I turned on my computer, and all was well until I tried to launch and application. It just turned my mouse cursor into an hour glass and sat there. It wasn't locked or frozen but I could not open any programs, I could not ctrl alt delete, nothing. So I restarted my computer, and did a system restore, and then things were ok. But this morning, after I restarted my computer, it did the exact same thing.

I bought McAfee or whatever, and ran it, and it didn't catch anything. I have run Ad-Aware several times, and I have the Microsoft anti spyware, and it has not caught anything either. I would run hijack this, but I can't launch any programs so I don't know how. Would it work in safe mode? Also, when I am in safe mode, everything is incredibly slow. Is that normal?
