Hacker Attack

So where to start in the explanation of my day so far.
6:25 A.M. - Get call from Doris at work - Her and Don's start page are a Porn site
6:30 A.M. - Leave for Work
6:50 A.M. - My alarm clock goes off as I am driving through Bartlett
7:05 A.M. - I begin to look at Don's computer
A. Control Panel, Display Properties, Task Manager, and Command Prompt have all been disabled.
B. Start page has been changed to a very horrific porn site.
7:15 A.M. - My second alarm sounds letting me know it is time to leave for work
8:00 A.M. - Having gotten nowhere with anti-virus scans I call my brother and email my AV provider
8:30 A.M. - I use Jester 2K Freeware to download autoruns.exe and Hijack This
9:30 A.M. - My A/V provider informs me this is not a virus
10:00 A.M. - Begin contact w/ Don's brother - Many great nideas...all dead ends so far.
11:30 A.M. Post message to the forum at Computer Cops I'll let you know if this works out for me.
