I don't know that your problem is malware, but I just wanted to point
that any scans you have done only reduce the chances that malware is
present. They can not and do not eliminate the possibility.
Particularly regarding spyware, a single anti-spyware product--even
the best one--is *not* good enough. Note what Eric Howes, who has done
extensive testing on Anti-Spyware products, states:
"No single anti-spyware scanner removes everything. Even the
best-performing anti-spyware scanner in these tests missed fully one
quarter of the "critical" files and Registry entries" See http://spywarewarrior.com/asw-test-guide.htm
If there's any possibility of malware infection, I recommend that you
go to Malke's Malware Removal site at http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/...moving_Malware
follow the instructions there.
