  1. hello, I just recently , today got a virus i ran ccleaner it screwed all my drivers up, i lost my sound and display, i fixed that though. But then later i got a Trojan or ad-ware just from ultimate-guitar.com i think cause that is when it happened. I used Malware bytes to remove it, 38 files infected, it got rid of it. But when i restartred my computer my backdrops on icons were off and Image name System constently takes up 73,964 k of memory... even when idling. When i start the PC it freezes sometimes, and recently when searching google it redirectes me to a wrong site. AVG did not find anything. Ccleaner wiped out my System Restore points also ... i really do not want to re format my computer.. i tried repairing Windows Xp but then it asks for Administrator password ( i am Administrator) I entered my pass but it says incorrect! please please help guys!! thanks for everything
