        ESET found nothing. Took ages; was at 99% by an hour and then took a further 3 hours to complete. Log is short but anyway:

          It's fine. It doesn't slow at all. Just want to say thanks.

          Anyway, do I still need JavaRa and other things?

          Yes, you need to keep all your programs updated. Malware just love out-of-date programs, especially Java.
          Let's do some cleanup.


          To uninstall ComboFix

          • Click the Start button. Click Run. For Vista: type in Run in the Start search, and click on Run in the results pane.
          • In the field, type in ComboFix /uninstall


          (Note: Make sure there's a space between the word ComboFix and the forward-slash.)

          • Then, press Enter, or click OK.
          • This will uninstall ComboFix, delete its folders and files, hides System files and folders, and resets System Restore.
          ***************************************************
          Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

          Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.

          Double-click TFC.exe to run it.

          Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator

          TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.

          * Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
          * Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
          * Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.

          Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.
          ***************************************************
          Use the Secunia Software Inspector to check for out of date software.

          •Click Start Now

          •Check the box next to Enable thorough system inspection.

          •Click Start

          •Allow the scan to finish and scroll down to see if any updates are needed.
          •Update anything listed.

            It says "Windows cannot find Combofix". I'm sure I'm trying it correctly.

            I could have already been removed. Look in your Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features and see if it's there. You can also check on your C drive to see if anything is left of ComboFix there.

            To set a new Restore Point.

            Click Start button , click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then clicking System. In the left pane, click System Protection.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. To turn off System Protection for a hard disk, clear the check box next to the disk, and then click OK. Reboot to Normal Mode.

            To turn on System Protection for a hard disk, select the check box next to the disk, and then click OK.
            This will give you a new, clean Restore Point.

              Right. OTL was weird. It showed the desktop like it said, although I didn't actually see the program. I only saw a black outline of where it should be. This was what was happening for about two minutes, then my computer restarted. Logging on, I noticed two files called "desktop.ini" on my desktop. Is this all meant to happen?

                Sorry, not OTL, I meant TFC. Dunno why I said that.

                  Ran it again and this time I managed to see some of what it was doing. It was saying 0 bytes cleared for everything so it had probably worked the first time. Still confused about the desktop.ini files. What do I do with them?

                  Desktop.ini is a Windows XP system file that stores information about customized folders. If you have customized the display of a folder in any way, such as changing its icon or manner of display, Windows has saved those settings in a desktop.ini file. In the following screenshot, I have right-clicked on a folder and am about to customize it.



                  Since Desktop.ini is a Windows system file, you are probably seeing it because you have set Explorer to display hidden/system files. By reversing this setting, you can get rid of Desktop.ini.

                  1.In any Windows Explorer window, click Tools ? Folder Options…
                  2.Click on the View tab.
                  3.Check off the radio button next to “Do not show hidden files and folders”.
                  4.Put a check in the box next to “Hide protected operating system files (recommended)”.
                  5.Click OK.
                  Here is a picture of the settings I have just described:



                  Once you have made these changes, Desktop.ini should be out of sight and out of mind. Here is a screen shot of the same folder from Figure 1. It’s still customized, but Desktop.ini is nowhere to be seen.

                    Okay, thanks very much SuperDave. The desktop.ini isn't showing anymore. Set a new restore point and all is well. Thanks again. Just out of curiosity was there much wrong with my computer?
