    Let's see...
    All of this happened right after I download something my friend showed me, but I stopped the download part way through and deleted the part of the .rar file.

    Kaspersky Antivirus completely fails
    When I go to the Windows Update page (with IE), it says I am not an Administrator, even though I am
    I cannot access Invisonfree or Zetaboard
    If I try to run Kaspersky, my computer immediately goes crazy and locks up

    I WAS able to download the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool or whatever it is, and that is successfully running.

    Anyway, do I have the Conficker, and if your not sure, how can I detect it.

    Btw, I am running Build 7068.

    certain downloads go to more than one location. Deleting in one location doesn't necessarily getting rid of the corrupted file. There is always system restore back a day to guarentee a complete delete of the file.
