A few months ago I turned on my pc and my graphics were garbled. At first I thought my video card had been fried but after reinstalling my drivers everything worked ok. That was just the beggining.
Over time I started to notice some pop up ads whenever I would use (be forced to use) IE. Then one day I tried to burn a CD using iTunes and was given a failure notification.
After searching around I found the error. It was a power failure and my burner was not being read. So I went to the device manager and of course it was blank.
I googled for the next few days and located a ton of information. I tried the aproposfix, reg edits, every spyware and trojan tool I could find but nothing was ever found.
My Device Manager still works in safe mode which leads me to believe it must be malware or a virus or something...
I also just recieved an iPod for Christmas and of course my pc won't read it. It's installed and shows up in ad/remove but when I open iTunes it won't show up. Works on my sisters pc fine however.
I'll wait until someone responds before posting a hijackthis log or anything.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. This is so terribly frustrating.
Oh I should add that I bought this pc from "joe pc builder" so of course I can't update from windows. Found that out after unistalling that update which caused others problems (KB905749) and then trying to reupdate. I'll be trying to get ahold of him.
