Glad you got it all sorted out.... Remember though, had you imaged your drive, your problem could have been resolved with a simple restore and would have saved you some $$$...

Glad to hear that you got it sorted with the help of Avast and Viper.

Thanx,but if i used that hitman pro first i never had to loose anything,i tried it on a buds pc which had the virus too (he got it of my external when copying files-before the hole loosing all data) and it ran a sort of online scan and found the virus and deleted it without him having to change or loose anything,so now my anti-virus is viper and i constantly run the hitman pro,even though its just for 30 day trails
