Hello,

I finally get an easy problem to solve.

Your system is no doubt been infected by the dreaded and annoying Trojan Virtumonde, alias Vundo.

Please download, install and run Spybot Search and Destroy which is now very well equipped to crush this virus.

Here is the link:

Once your computer is clean and working normally just to be on the safe side
•Turn off system restore and wait 30 seconds,
•Turn it back on and create a new restore point.

This way it gets rid of anything bad that might have gotten saved in a restore point and you have a clean restore point to use in the near future if needed.
Do not turn it off until your computer is clean and working normally because you might need to use it if something goes wrong during the clean-up process.
It is better to go back to an infected restore point if something goes wrong then to not be able to undo changes that were damaging.

Please do let me know how it worked for you

Best regards
