    I'm not sure whats going on. You might need to make a post in the Microsoft Windows forum and see if someone there can help.

      Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one
      Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will enable your computer to roll-back to a clean working state if needed.
      • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore
      • Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next Give the Restore Point a name then click Create.
      • The new restore point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
      • Next go to Start > Run and type Cleanmgr
      • Click OK
      • Click the More Options Tab.
      • Click Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created clean one.
      You can find instructions on how to enable and re-enable system restore here:

      Windows XP System Restore Guide or Windows Vista System Restore Guide
      .
      ----------

      Use the Secunia Software Inspector to check for out of date software.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.
      .
      ----------

      Go to Microsoft Windows Update and get all critical updates.

      Here are some great FREE tools to help you keep from getting infected again. These tools use little or no resources so won't slow down your PC.

      Concerned about Browser Security? Consider using Mozilla Firefox 3.0 with Adblock Plus and NoScript

      To prevent unknown applications from being installed on your computer install WinPatrol 2008

      I suggest using SiteAdvisor. SiteAdvisor rates sites on business practices and spam. Safety ratings from McAfee SiteAdvisor are based on automated safety tests of Web sites.
