    Your system is badly infected with several worms and trojans. You are running a completely unpatched version of Windows.

    Disconnect from the internet and reformat and reinstall your OS. Then install your Firewall. Reconnect to the net and install your drivers, update your windows via Windows updates, to at least service pack 1 and preferably service pack 2. Then install your antivirus programme etc.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you disconnect from the net and reformat and don`t reconnect to the net untill you have your firewall installed, you should be ok. Make sure you update your Windows to sp1 or sp2. Then install your antivirus programme and whatever else you need.

    Regards Howard :)
