I started having major problems a couple of days ago with applications failing to startup, system becoming sluggish on start-up, etc. norton internet security wasn't working so I tried to install AVG8. That install failed and the resultant error codes led me to suspect there was a trojan lurking - which combo-fix.exe promptly found.
The logfile is attached. Anyone have some suggestions on how best to proceed at this point?
The only pop-up that had appeared was a WinPrint dialog box repeatedly telling me some software had been patched. I don't know what software it refers to. Killing the process via Task Manager would remove it until the next boot of the system. However, applications began slowing up and/or not responding at all - to the point where periodically Roxio would not even start at all and AVG wouldn't install.
The above indicates what the progress has been thus far. AVG is currently scanning and has found quite a few baddies that it will, hopefully, remove. So anyway, .. next steps?
