Practically all functionality is shut down: firefox, chrome , Word, Adobe Acrobat reader, etc.

I can do https://, mostly just gmail.

Somehow "Security Suite" got in the PC. It scans as an eval copy but you have to purchase, and its expensive ($50 for 3 months ). Plus the site to purchase this comes up ok in IE.

I think the virus got on there via online games or something like that.

I can probably re
store to store-bought condition, them reload software. Plus make sure I have adequate protection this time. But if there's something quick I can do, I'll give it a shot.
