got a virus tonight...here are the symptoms: if i double-click an icon on the desktop it brings up the properties box instead of starting the program (have to right-click and say open). the keyboard has been disabled and, after the computer going to sleep, i cannot log into my Admin acct, I can only log onto the other user (the kids, with no rights). When I go to explorer it says that all files are hidden. when i moved a couple of anti-virus/anti-spyware icons on the kids desktop, they were copied instead of moved. Hijack This is not available from the 'all programs' button in the start icon, it says that the folder is 'empty'. normally i would go through the 8-steps, but i can't get to everything and i can't even type anything. not sure where to go from here. ran malwarebytes, spy hunter, superantispyware, and AVG Anti-Virus and they all found nothing. will just shut down for the night and take it up tomorrow. i'm on my laptop which is connected via a wireless router - nervous that something's going to turn up here too. would appreciate any help that anyone can provide for work-arounds to get some usable logs from Hijack This for review. Thanks.
