    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Get rid of that McAfee rubbish and download and install the free AVG antivirus programme and the free Zonealarm firewall.

    Install Zonealarm, followed by AVG. Run the AVG updates, then do a full system scan in safe mode.

    Are you sure it was sc.exe? As this normally the Windows NT Service Management file.

    Post a fresh HJT log and I`ll take a look.

    Regards Howard :)
