I agree the best bet is to wait for one of our security experts but I think it will be along job to clean this machine. From my limited research on the subject it would appear that the problem is very deeply embedded in the system!

Oh god that sounds bad. But unfortunately I don't have the original Windows7 disk to format it. Can you guys help me to tag some experts here? Or can I just simply delete the .scr files?

Don't get worried about a clean install yet, it may not come to that. If it does then it is no problem to download the latest ISO for your version of Windows. The main thing is, have you got a sticker on the laptop giving the version of windows and the key number? (Don't quote the key number here!)

Yeah, but a letter or two are fading and I can't really see it.

Changing One Folder Changes All Folders
I still don't get it. Being a long-time XP user, I'm used to customizing individual folders. With Windows 7, changing one folder changes all folders.

How can I keep all folders from changing?
What I mean is, when I set Documents as Small Icons, how can I keep folders inside Documents from doing the same thing? Like when I go into My Received Files, I don't want the pictures to be small icons. I want them to be medium/large. But any change I make in a folder applies itself to every other...
