    a few days ago I opened my computer, and all my icons dissapeared from the desktop and the start menu. I did a system restore to an earlier date. This main problem was fixed, but I am still experiencing some problems:
    - IE shuts down after about 10 minutes
    - some audio ads start playing at random times
    - sometimes my Ie redirects to some other pages when I click on links in google
    - iTunes opens up every 10 minutes or so

    I tried to run Malware, spybot, but even though they find something, it is still the same.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    It sounds highly likely that your system is infected. Start a new thread in the Malware forum to recieve help from the Malware staff.
