I made an account for all of you to address my problem if your willing and able. . Recently I've started contracting some sort of malware ( I believe). Symptoms include :

-Unnamed/Unopenable folders in places such as Control panel, Network Connections, and a few other places;
-A select few programs won't run ( a rundll32.exe issue or something ? I'm not sure really);
-"My Computer" was renamed *and* re Iconed to folder with the name 'folder' on the desktop;
-On the start menu under the subdirectory "programs" there are now NO entries at all, no programs or utilities are listed now. . annoying.
-On some internet programs, aim for example, instead of displaying the startup page it prompts me to save open or cancel the html 'download'.

I've come across this bug more than once, in both instances I've reformated. I don't think it will help to do so again, seeing as I'll just catch the cold again.

If any of you have suggestions, I'd really appreciate any advice you could give! Thanks !

When I try to search for things using win+f for instance, it says "this program does not have a file associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel"
