    One of those bogus "antivirus software alert" things has started on my computer. "
    Ctrl+Alt+Del will not bring up the Task Manager.
    Chrome will not start.
    My usual browser, Opera is running poorly.
    I can't get HijackThis or MalwareBytes to run either.
    Currently Firefox is running well.

    Multiple IE windows are coming up with links to places like "porno.com" and things about Viagra.

    I usually can find my problem referenced in a post here and take care of things myself without bothering anyone - Tonight however I've met up with a tougher problem.

    I will try to stay awake for a while if anyone can help tonight,
    Thank you.

    I should add that the bogus antivirus says I have bankerfox.a and nugel.e.

    Well I seem to have beaten this thing down enough that now everything's operating. It wouldn't let me start ComboFix so I rebooted and as soon as the desktop became visible I double-clicked ComboFix and got it to run.... maybe this will help someone down the road.

    Meanwhile, would it be appropriate for me to ask for someone to read a HijackThis log for me to see if I succeeded in removing my problem?
