You certainly do have a nasty lurking. Here are some removal instructions. Exploit blackhole and another Exploit blackhole 2

Hi, strangely, the scan doesn't find any viruses(exploit)?

Wondered where you had got to. So the scans suggest nothing is there yet AVG seems to disagree. Very odd. I'll have another look around later. Doing this from the IPad and later,when I get out of my bed,I'll be fitting an antec kuhler 920 to my rig. So it might b later in the day.

One suggestion is to try one of the better online scanners.

Here you go. Scanners I personally like Trend Micro and F-Secure.
