I managed to slam and get rid of that nasty spyware/trojan that announces you have spyware on your machine but not until it caused some minor damage to my OS. Here are the residuals I'm left with: Time sync won't work right. When I try to update my time, it errors out In Outlook, when ever I click on a HTML link inside an email, it opens an explorer window in addition to my browser. Weird. When I'm away from my machine and I come back, when the login screen comes back up, my keyboard is disabled (keylogger at work but gone). I have to use the guest account to log in and then log out (all with mouse - guest account has no password), presto - my keyboard is working again. Frackin weird. When I use IE7 and log into an Outlook Web Access (OWA) site, an web Outlook appointment reminder pop-up crashes IE7. OWA acts just like Outlook with pop-ups and sound. Kinda nice but I can't use the OWA sites anymore because of this issue. All of these never happened pre-infection. Here's what I'm thinking that might help: a) Do a repair at the start-up using my XP CD and repair office (eech - least desirable) b) Reinstall XP Service Pack 2 and reinstall Office - but will it fix my issues? c) Find a utility that can fix up my OS and Office (suggestions?) d) Upgrade to Vista (ummm... hitting a 2cm nail with a 2000lb hammer) e) Try addressing each issue individually. Time consuming but it fixes everything. I've tried repairing office, but that annoying glitch won't disappear. Any suggestions is appreciated.
