For some funny reason, IE gets timed out / is very slow with a few particular websites. With others not at all.Not sure if this is  related to the problems we're having.

For info, just had an IE 'Data Execution Prevention (DEP)' event.

Something amiss here

Lets try an SFC

Go to start > All Programs > Accessories
Right Click Command Prompt and select run as administrator
When the prompt opens type the following bolded text and press enter

sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)

On completion reboot

Thanks. Don't want to pretend I have a clue, but I ran another program, spyware terminator, and it appears to have found lots of trojan related stuff. Just don't know how to get the log to you. Log can be copied to 'clipboard' but no idea where to find it then. It won't go with a post. Would like to share it with you.

If you copy it to clipboard, open a notepad and then select paste

just to further clarify, did not clean anything as yet. i suppose i would have to rerun the scan to clear or clean.

Well that programme does not like Google, dotnet, windows mobile, windows live mail, ATI and MS works

Nothing there as far as I could see was a legitimate detection.. Do you need to buy the programme to commence cleaning ?

Thanks. No, don't have to buy. But if not legitimate I'll just leave it for now I think. Or do you suggest I clean anyway? What happens there anyway, do the guys that try and sell these programs just throw in these trojan ids in the hope we'll ultimately buy their stuff?

I will do now what you said I should do -> SFC.

Did the Windows Protection thing as you suggested. Its message was that it found corrupt files and that it was unable to fix some of them. I rebooted. Still no back-up possible.

I located the CBS file (log) created by the SFC but access is denied. Do you need it and if so is there something else I could do?

Do you have the Vista repair console installed ?  When you select F8 as if to go to safe mode is there an additional option on the menu to Repair my computer

Yes, but I believe I tried that earlier. Before I made your life a challenge.....  If I recall correctly it wants some prior restore point? At that time it did not work for me. I'll gladly try again - anything in particular still I should keep in mind when I go there?

Not really try the repair my computer option but do not go for a restore point, cancel that and go to the next stage

There is a step by step guide here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html
