I'm not sure that I understand ALL of what you're saying but it's a good
idea to go ahead and start scanning for various types of malware. Do your
scans in safe mode with restore disabled. You might also want to delete your
prefetch folder for something that's seemingly as deep as this one is. Below
are a number of links to some free software that you can download and use.
All of them are decent and will probably do the trick for you so pick one in
each category or two or all of the ones in the spyware category if you'd
like. To get to safe mode you'll want to press F8 during boot and select
safe mode without networking. As for making repairs, when you're able to
boot into safe mode you should be able to log on as administrator with the
original password used at setup time or with no password if you didn't opt
to use one. From there you should be able to make any changes required but
I'd wait until after you've scanned before going ahead and making these
changes to the accounts. You'll also probably want to grab yourself a copy
of LSPFix so I'll include that link to. That will help you should your
cleaning process decide to eat your winsock and make it so that you're
unable to connect to the internet. You might also want to make sure that you
download and properly configure a firewall, there are free options available
for you as well.

*My understanding CA is available free for a limited time. Please note that
the page says this:
@Free software offer expires 2/1/05.@
The number of times it has been given out as a viable option leads me to
believe that this has been extended. You should, of course, verify this on
your own.

I hope that these are what you're looking for. Given what I've read from the
above, and if I'm reading it properly, it looks as though you should take a
bit of time securing your computer. I highly recommend that you grab a
firewall. Here's a few free ones that you can use and they're all worth
using though you'll want to make sure to take a little while to learn to
configure them properly though you can always use the Windows firewall. If
you haven't upgraded to SP2 it's a good idea to do so.
