About two weeks ago, I got a monstrous case of a trojan horse called Virtumonde. It slipped past 2 antivirus programs and 3 malware detection programs, and was nothing short of an iron clad b**** to get off my machine. As far as I know, I've finally succeeded; Half the time my computer will boot up normally, half the time it gets stuck on the "Welcome" window (I run Windows XP Home Edition).

The biggest problem is that when I try to activate World of Warcraft it either freezes my system completely once I've logged in, meriting a reboot, or else my computer just automatically restarts. I defrag my computer often, virus scans (got Avira antivirus, best on the free market IMO) are clean, disk checks are also clean, I have also dusted out my computer and it doesn't seem to be overheating. I can run anything else just fine (when the freaking POS even bothers to boot up in the first place), but try to run Warcraft and suddenly the trouble begins anew.

Any advice? is it hardware, software? anything that would cause the problems with the freezing on boot-up and on trying to run the game? At this point I have no idea where to go from here.
