Thanks for your help =).

No luck so far though, I've ran most programs I can think of ie: Combofix, Drwebcureit, Adaware, Nod32, Registry Cleaner (lol), Hijackthis, ect.

I'd appreciate any help I could get =3. I mean, I think I might just have to repair explorer.exe now, and the infection is probably gone. I've got no clue how to use the recovery console though, and that's probably the next step.

But, hey, thanks anyways =).
