I hope it is the right topic for it.
I recently noticed that svchost and spools exes are requesting my internet connection very persistantly, I denied and blocked them in firewall, but I guess it was too late now that I ran the highjackthis and found out I have spools.exe, svchost.exe.exe.exe, cftmon.exe, IEBHO.dll, dpevflbg toolbar and lcxazwds.exe
Performance became super slow too and then it started to acting out, like popping up fake error messages and I can not start any programms normally, I have to run as and log in with my account and pass , then some do start. Some IE and Firefox webpages crashed now and then with the error message of iexplorer.exe and mozilla.exe and then just being shut up.
I read this useful forum and found info on the above malware but I can not find info on what lcxazwds.exe is , does anyone know what kind of malware that is since it was also marked as nasty in highjackthis ? I googled it all possible ways, checked malware databases, found nothing.
(I know I should have taken better care of my windows and updates, I use windows xp professional, sp1, ie6 sp1 and occasionally mozilla firefox. I also run a firewall and antivirus.)
I'd appreciate any help, thank you.
I am currently backing up files before I start any removal and reformat and reinstall...
