My own recommendation for possible malware infection is to do the following:
********* PLEASE FOLLOW EACH STEP CAREFULLY!!!!!!!! If you skip a step ********* IT WILL NOT WORK!! *********
1) Download the program The Cleaner 2013 from http://www.moosoft.com/ or ftp.moosoft.com in /pub and remember where you save it to.
2) Run cleaner9_setup.exe to install the program.
3) Run The Cleaner by clicking on the desktop icon created.
4) Press the Update tab then the Check for Updates button.
5) Close The Cleaner and reboot your computer into Safe Mode -- If you do not know how to boot into Safe Mode, instructions are at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222
6) Unplug your modem during the scan.
7) When your computer reboots, start The Cleaner AS STEP 3, select Scan, then select Full Scan and Use Heuristics and then select Start then select all your drives and then select Ok.
-- When you are finished with the above, reboot again, plug your modem back in, and update your Windows at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
»» Finally, change ALL your passwords, as they may have been seen by every hacker in the world.
