GianniDPC you ROCK!!!
I was able to run Hitman Pro Scan off my desktop after going to properties and clicking unblock and then running as administrator. This is the 1st program that I have been able to run.

Also it has found that I have a variant of the TDL Rootkit (TDSS, Alureon, Olmarik)

Thus far its found 2 Trojans
a Key Logger and A Rootkit that is affecting my master boot record.

Still waiting for it to finish, but thank you very much for the suggestion.
At least I know whats wrong and can work to fix it

I am now posting this message from Firefox
A program that until about 4 minutes ago I was unable to run.
I am currently scanning my entire system with Malwarebytes and every other program I have to clean my system.
Thank you again very much.

Ok please don't forget to post the history from hitman pro (like I said in my previous post) and after your system is clean again Install SP1 like I suggested in one of my previous posts (Or do you already have SP1 ??) . You can check that doing (Win key +R) type 'winver'
