Last nite everything was fine.

This morning all my browsers except Google Chrome are dead.

The dead browsers are Microsoft IE, Firefox 3.5.5 and Opera 10.10

After clicking them, nothing

Check under task manager, they are there, and taking a lot of CPU
resources, but stay behind

Killed those browsers and re-install, still the same.

So I download the MBAM (Malyware Bytes Anti-Malware) and scan

After a scan, MBAM reported that there were 5 trojans, and I deleted
all 5 of them.

Reboot the computer, and still the browsers (except Google Chrome)
refused to work.

Run MBAM again, 3 more data entries in the Registry were found. Delete
them again (report at the end of message)

Reboot.

Still the browsers can't run.

Download Avast and Norton.

Norton won't run without downloading their virus definition, but
something is blocking Norton from downloading their virus
definition !!

Now Avast is downloading its virus definition, VERY SLOW !

My 2mbps line is downloading at less than 2kbps speed !!

I will run Avast after it finishes with the update.

BTW, is there any other package that I should run to check what
actually has happened to my computer?

Please help !
