Yeah Kapersky and NOD32 are by far the best antivirus programs hands down!, I would not pay for any others. Norton is a deff joke!
I like the free ones, AVG and Avast, but I backup my stuff regularly and if I have a big issue I just start over(gotta love a slipstream windows CD). I also have a hardware firewall in my router and I use FF with the "noscript" addon that blocks a ton of crap unless I allow it.
A friend had a similar malware, "AV2009", that kept rebooting his laptop every 5mins literally. I just backed up his important stuff and gave him a fresh windows. He had a bunch of junk on there anyway so I gave him some tips and cleaned it up. I'm not too keen on the registry either and this was my 1st experience with Vista.
