cannot log off from the intenet have to just shutdown and restart.

Yea...  I would boot into safe mode and scan your system..  (F8 at startup)    If you do not have the updated virus defintions, burn them onto a cd from another system and install them from it while in safe mode, then scan..  Make sure you also have the latest patches from MS too...
