    okay thanks
    i managed to fix it with a 'last known good configuration', when it eventually gave me the option

    it was firefox/something/iamfamous.dll, an obvious trojan
    is it true that if you clean with antivirus its STILL not safe to do online banking after this?
    thanks

    It really depends on the virus. Some have no intentions of stealing your information and are more there to delete and make a hard time of your PC. But i still never advise online banking. I do it because i have 48p in my account (being a kid is tough :p) but still stay away from it if you can.
