My WINDOWS XP laptop computer is running slow and takes a very long time to boot. I am an advanced computer user, and after running MALWAREBYTES & HIJACK THIS - nothing unusual.
SUPER ANTISPYWARE reports Trojan.Dropper/SVCHost-Fake as the file C:\windows\temp\svchost.exe. Attempts to delete the file fail because when the computer reboots it gets created again. SuperAntispyware attemts to remove the Trojan but before the computer reboots I get an error that flashes on the screen saying SVCHost Application Error at certain memory address (it flashes too quickly to copy) and now I get this error every time I shut down.
ComboFix will start to run then stalls before the first scan completes.
TDSSKiller reports no threats found.
DEFOGGER reports no cd emulation software.
GMER log is attached as ark.txt
DDS tool begins to scan than hangs my computer (in safe mode and regular). It starts to scan than after half a screen of scan (the # signs scan indicator scans up to the end of the word "where"), it hangs, and I have to reboot.
