    kpoi,
    Turn on Windows Firewall.

    Update and run Windows Defender.

    Download and run Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Go to
    http://www.f-secure.com/security_center/

    run an "online check" of your system from their site.

    Download their free anti-rootkit software.

    Turn off and Disable McAffee (which I suspect the malware has messed with).

    Download and install AVG or Avast or ESET NOD32. All are free for a short period of time and AVG has an unlimited-time free version.

    During all of this time, only go online when needed to fetch/utilize the above-mentioned.

    Thanks Karl
    I can not download anything from the internet.I turned on firewall and tried to install or update software(also tried with firewall turned off) but didn't work.
    It says, insufficient rights to use activeX controls!please check with user rights. also i cannot uninstall any programs from add/remove programs!!

    *I can not save anyhing from internet....if I click on download button from any site, it will show either error because of activeX or window will simply disappear after I click on save or run button.
