Thanks to everyone who responded.
Disconnected from the internet, with System Restore off, and in safe mode I ran a full computer scan with:
1. Malwarebytes, which detected nothing.
2. SUPERAntiSpyware, which detected a couple of adware items.
3. AVG, the program that failed initally to protect me, ironically detected and was able to clear a bunch of Trojan stuff.
I rebooted in normal startup mode and ran a full scan with AVG, and only some tracking cookies were detected.
I also had a little browser re-direction problem that appears to be fixed also.
Thanks again. Now my dilemma is which internet protection to use. AVG failed to protect, but was also able to fix the problem. Should I stay or switch? To what?
