I stupidly did a download and install of Xvid from a questionable web site.
After my brain cramp subsided I uninstalled the program and decided to clean the registry up with CCleaner.
CCleaner wouldn't open. A flash and it was gone.
Tried to do a system restore (Windows 7 64bit) and got the same result, a flash and it was gone.
After much messing around I found a program called Crystal.exe in the startup. (MSconfig)
I unchecked the box so it wouldn't start up and rebooted.
CCleaner and system restore now work ok.
I've done system scans with Microsoft Security Essentials, Threatfire, Malwarebytes, and IOBit Malware fighter.
Everything says the system is clean.
Anyone got any ideas?
