Somehow, after years of cautious browsing under AVG (free), I got hit by Vundo, Netsky, CTX and Sheur all at once. Anyway, not happy with AVG, I think I have got rid of them with Avast/Spybot/Ad-aware and Hijack This.
However, I have two odd issues, which I think must be related:
1 - I can only occassionally restart my machine in Safe Mode
2 - Windows Update no longer works - I just get taken to 'IE Cannot Display the Requested Web Page' as if the server is down.
This situation has persisted for about 2 wks now.
I'm particularly concerned about the windows update thing - because either i'm being dumb, or there is still something lurking thats denying me access.
Any help and advice is greatly appreciated as ever
