Scan for malware:

1. Use safe mode with networking to download, install, and update Malwarebytes. Then do a full system scan.

2. Do the same with SuperAntiSpyware

3. Disable your current anti-virus.

4. Download, install, and update Avira Anti-Vir. Do a full system scan to double check. Avira is a real time, live updating AV.

5. Use CCleaner to repair any registry damage.

6. Re-enable your current anti-virus

7. Stop using the Windows firewall, as it protects in only one direction. use Outpost or ZoneAlarm (without the toolbar.)

8. Get SP3 and all subsequent Updates.
