    Please help. Our family computer has started opening up explorer windows, some of which are not for family viewing.
    It all started after my son checked his emails and played on Runescape, according to the history. I have AVG free running and Spywaredoctor but he insists there were no warnings??!!??
    I am on the verge of a re-format but the thought of installing all that stuff is putting me off.

    Here is the latest HJT file.

    I have downloaded superantispyware and cleaned what it suggested, AVG keeps finding trojans in temp internet files and I keep vaulting them and running ATF on IE7 and Firefox but I am obviously not rooting out the initial cause. Any help to avoid the dreaded format process would be appreciated Cheers.
