    my mother's notebook (OS: Windows Vista Home Basic, SP2) got infected with some kind of virus. I tried to do a system scan with Avira Antivir but it crashed and now it won't start again. I also tried MBAM which also crashed and then told me access denied. Same with HiJackThis.
    Furthermore any internet explorer (IE, Firefox, Chrome) keeps redirecting me to sites I never wanted to visit. I finally managed to get an online scan started but after about 20% it crashed...
    I hope sombody can help me.
