Right, i had a malware attack where i would get redirected to other websites from google, so i did some research and believed it to be vundo, ran a scan and no luck. after which i ignored it for a couple of days and then i got the blue screen of death with a feature from system security, after days of not being able to open anything this has become a little frustrating.

So i booted up in safe mode and installed malwarebytes.exe and adwarekiller or something to clean up sure enough 9 files wer found with a mix of dlls, registries etc. and i cleaned them up this appeared to get rid of the problem on the first boot as no screen of death, HOWEVER no programmes would open problem number 2.

i thought i may have deleted vital registry entries so i downloaded a registry fixer and cleaned once again. booted up in normal mode and it works but OMG so slow it will take 5mins to open a programme window and even then not operate properly- take another 2 mins to highlight a button etc.

other info when opening task manager QTTASK.exe (quicktime) is using on average 97% of cpu and it was like it when the malware was present. which got me thinking the root of the malware must still be present

after running HighjackThis this is my log:
