Infected and can't run tools to remove

Recommended Posts

I have some kind of malware going on; IE opens by itself and any search engine result links are redirected. Also Internet connectivity seems to slow WAY down at times.

I run Norton Internet Security and keep it and Windows (XP, SP3) up to date.

Here's what I've tried so far

-- Norton runs a full scan and reports no problems found.

-- Ad-Aware AE won't run at all

-- Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware starts to run then ends abruptly

-- HijackThis starts to run then ends abruptly

-- EST Online Scanner hangs after just a few minutes

-- I did not notice anything really weird in the registry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or


Any and all help is greatly appreciated
