Hi guys!

Thanks for all the advice and tips - I really appreciate it!

I ran TDSSKiller about 4 hours ago and it found a threat which was solved and I also ran HitmanPro after that and it found nothing.

So far I haven't had any suspicious activity on my computer since I've done these. I will keep an eye on everything and let you know if something happens, but for now, I just want to say thank you!
I am feeling a lot calmer about my PC and I wouldn't have been able to do it without all your advice and kind words. Thanks for sticking by such a confused newbie like myself!

Windows 7 & Windows Vista Ultimate

You are very welcome, LuiseMS. We are all newbies at something.

In your initial post, you indicated that you had run AVG, Norton, McAfee, Panda, Ad-Aware. I am hoping that you have already uninstalled the extra antivirus software programs. If not, please do so since you could run into serious conflicts. It also wouldn't hurt to run Uninstall & Remove McAfee Norton & More Antivirus Applications — OPSWAT AppRemover to take care of the leftovers since A/V uninstalls are not always thorough.

To check if your system is missing security updates or has insecure applications, install Secunia Personal Software Inspector or, alternatively, visit OSI - Consumer - Products . The Secunia Software Inspector runs through your browser with no installation or download required and does the following:
  • Detects insecure versions of applications installed
  • Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied
  • Assists you in updating your system and applications
