I really do need some help, and it seems, that this is the best place to get some.
A while ago, i was looking for an alternative to stage 6 DivX hosting, when i came to a side which suddenly smashed a whole lot of spyware on my computer.
Unfortunately i havnt had any protection running at that moment, so i really got the whole load of it.
I cleaned out the most of it with Spyware Doctor and Avast Anti Virus, but still i have got some problems now.
1) My Java is totally messed up, everytime i want to run a java application it just doesnt work. Also reinstalling doesnt work. Sometimes its missing a dll sometimes it just freezes.
2) Also Flash applications often (not always) dont work anymore. Sometimes players dont even appear, sometimes they appear but only play for 2 or 3 seconds and than freeze. Sometimes it does work, but thats very seldom :)
3) Most of the downloads i start, freeze after i downloaded a few hundred kbs. Or there is even no progress bar appearing. Sometimes it works and downloads, but then the file is corrupted.
4) I can search in google, no problem. But once i click a link in google, it automatically forwards me to an other searchengine (one of hundrets actually) with no search results.
5) Last but not least, i bought spore the other day, and tried it, and it says i dont have the up-to-date grafics driver, but i looked at the intel page and it seems that i have the up-to-date one.
Since i am quite the PC Newbie, it would be really nice if one of you good souls would offer some advice for me.
