Hi folks.

My computer got infected with something nasty at the end of last week, leading to frequent crashes, my firewall getting disabled, and some odd browser behavior. I updated my antivirus, changed my firewall to Zone Alarm from the Windows firewall, and installed Malwarebytes. This turned up some nasty malware/viruses, which I got rid of.

But it didn't get everything, I guess. The current symptoms are these: I get an occasional alert from my antivirus about 'bo:heap' being detected and blocked; my browser (I've used both IE & Firefox) frequently locks up (mostly IE) or causes the whole computer to freeze (mostly Firefox); and when I use google for searches using IE, the search proceeds normally, but I get redirected when I click on one of the results. I also notice an odd icon in the upper left-hand corner of the results screen.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

A quick update/clarification: in addition to the other symptoms listed in the previous post, there's a general slow-down in performance -- in running progs other than browsers, and (esp.) during start-up. Also the computer freezes/crashes have occurred when no browser is open.

Again, thanks to any who can spare the time to help during this hectic time of year. Cheers,
