i recently logged onto facebook and clicked on a fanpage that one of my friend liked. it then took me to another page and all of a sudden i started getting pop ups. since i am using avast as an antivirus a notification popped up saying that there was a trojan virus blocked. i dont know which one it was. now when i log onto my desktop theres nothing but a black screen and the cursor. i would then have to do alt+ctrl+del and start a new task and open explorer.exe for the desktop to show up. some of the webpages that i open up using mozilla firefox wont show anything but text and links for example yahoo's homepage. now when i go on facebook i cant post or comment on anyone's page. i noticed that i could do everything normally on facebook when im using internet explorer. the yahoo home page works on ie too. i also tried doing a system restore but it doesnt seem to do anything. i know that there are some things that i should have done before i post a new topic here but its been awhile since i last used this. can you please help guide me through all the steps please. thank you.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.
