I ran the procedure posted by Howard_hopkinso. Uploaded HJT, AVG antispyware report and combofix log. AVG antiroot scan was clean. Several of my drivers will not work (wireless LAN, USB, printers, sound card, etc.), and I get error messages when I try to reload them. Random sites keep popping up when on the internet (IE). Compaq notebook V2310US, Windows XP SP2, 1 Gb Ram. This is nasty and I know the easy way would be to reformat, but this thing has me pissed off and I want someone's help to beat it. Roy Whatever is going on in my puter, it also deleted all my system restore points.
