Thanks for all your help. I plan to reformat my computer when I have a clear day one weekend. In the meantime I have disconnected the ethernet cable so it cannot now connect to the internet or the network.

I will start new topic as you suggested to check my labtop when I return from a few days away.

I will also make a donation.

I will be quite honest with you - re your comments about safe browsing - I think the malware got into my computer from a porno site. These sites seem to be very complex and open multiple windows all trying to open videos etc and I feel the malware writers feel morally justified to target porn sites. I will not follow links from spam e-mails either in future or go to porn sites.

I presume this thread is now closed. Will it be accessible for a while so that I can get to the links you recommend or will it be deleted?

Thanks for your help - Jim701

Thanks for all your help.
You're quite welcome!

From what you have described it seems likely the infection came from a video containing a Flash Player or Windows vulnerability.

I have listed some information below on tools you can use to help reduce the chances of re-infection. When you reformat and install Windows your first priority should be to install an Anti-Virus program, then install all available Windows Updates and then install the tools below.

I will have this topic closed tomorrow but you will still be able to access it.

Safe surfin!
