I have been infected with a trojan that has lowered my security settings, dramatically slowed computer performance, disabled Task Manager and options on the Start menu, replaced my background with one that, when clicked, would try and redirect me to a malicious site, and every time upon startup runs a fake anti-virus program to try and redirect me to a malicious site. I have Trend Micro on my computer which isn't picking up the Trojan, but is blocking its attempts to redirect. I immediately googled, found a little more info on it, and downloaded PCTools and SUPERAntiSpyware. PCTools hasn't picked up anything, but SUPERAntiSpyware has picked up and removed a Trojan file and a number of setting hijacks. I also disabled System Restore on the chance it would use infected backup files to restore the malicious files. After using SUPERAntiSpyware, the background is now gone and is just blank white, and the fake anti-virus and slowed performance still persists.

4. Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first (not for Windows Vista users !).
The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode, in case your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. This allows us to help you. (WinXP SP3 users, please download the appropriate SP2 file, Home or Pro, to install the RC)

In the event you already have Combofix, and you're notified a more current version is available, please download the latest version as described in the tutorial.
It must be saved directly to your desktop.


Note: Make sure not to click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.

Please post the log from ComboFix (can also be found as C:\ComboFix.txt) in your next reply. :thumbsup:

If you have any questions along the way, STOP and ask them before proceeding !!

Greetings,
Thunder
