I can format and install fresh windows xpsp2 into my computer. Upon installing any software the firewall is turned off and the task manager disabled still in the administrator account.

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.
