I'm actually planning on getting a Mac and am sad that they are so expensive. I'm getting one to use music software equipment on. I'm still planning on using my PC though. I just want to use the Mac for my music stuff since it is industry standard and I am trying to get into engineering and such and would want to practice at home.

You have what is known as a "hijack" virus. Those are the toughest ones by far ... the one piece of software I've used that has actually worked is called "hijack this!" Get it here... otherwise, if this doesn't work, it is a struggle.

Don't visit those funny web sites!

Wait until you're off the pain medication before you make any rash decisions :)

I'm not sure which website I got it from, it was definitely not from a porn site. The guy who helped me fix it said you could get it from the CNN site. Something in regards to if they have a picture on their website that was hosted somewhere else and it gets infected or something like that.

It is hard to say.

But, are you in the habit of opening file attachments friends or acquaintances send you by email? Those are very dangerous, as they get passed and relayed by thousands of PCs. I never open those, unless they're work related.

No, and I'm very careful most of the time to not even open an email that looks suspicious, I just "spam" it.

I had the same thing. My son walked me through 'restoring' my computer by having it revert to a time BEFORE I noticed the malware. No problems since.
