Hi I've had enough of this gremlin now. The only obvious symtom I have is a Red button with a yellow exclamtion mark on it appearing on the task bar at boot up saying security warning etc. and a pop up telling me no internet connection available in spite of being permanently connected via broadband. When I click on the attachment link to send you the hjt log the no internet connection pop up appears and I don't seem to be able to send the attachment. AVG keeps sending lop.aq to the virus vault but can't get rid. It would appear to be in a file in the temporary internet files/ie5 content/ELSNUJIL/ff3 backup copy. I've been battling it for two days and still can't get solve in spite of following all the advice posted on this forum. HELP!
