Cool, go with WDO and other suggestions.

If you can't get this fixed with WDO, etc. I'd like to know.
I'm willing to setup a test PC to test this and help figure out what's happening.

I'm "security conscious" and would like to know and understand this...

Oh CCleaner would just be to clean the temp files. It does not fix the original cause. Hence the recommendations to scan outside windows. There were already malicious items removed, and likely some still lurking. A Guy

My $0.02 worth. Is there a possibility that your browsers have a home page set to a site that wants to install some virus/trojan on your system.?
As ususal, I highly recommend the pay version of Malwarebytes as it activly checks websites that you visit.

Well for what it is worth if aka you are going to do a clean install if you have access to another machine how about doing a DISKPART and get the drive ready that way? You will need some way of hooking up the drive but there are USB gadgets to do that or even hooking directly into the machine.

SSD Alignment < I know it says SSD but works just as well on ordinary HDD's.

Another option is a wipe with the Partition Wizard
Partition Manager Server, server partition manager and partition magic server for Windows Server 2000/2003/2008. Server Partition software for Windows Server and None-Server partitions

Well aka you will get a torrent of advice re this mate and it depends on whetther you want on for free or paid for.

Personally I get paid for because when all is said and done you get what you pay for!!

I use Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) 2013 and Malwarebytes (MBAM) - free add on and SuperAntiSpyware (SAS) - free add on myself.

If you want my advice I would include the CClenarer app (free) for tidying up your machine and keeping it clutter free.
Kaspersky Lab US | Antivirus Computer Security < be very careful where you get it from it is regional ie buy it here in Australia and it will not activate in the UK. If you want this one I cn guide you with a great configuration set up.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware! < download the free version

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download < download from piriform

There will be more to come I expect and have your head spinning LOL!!

My Temp folder is pretty big
http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/5869/hugetemp.jpg My windows partition is 100 GB and I always was curios how did it get full, I wonder if it's normal to have a 40GB temp folder, and what would happen if I delete it? All the files that I need are saved, so I guess nothing will be loss.
