I had a trojan infection yesterday- I have manged to get rid of it thanks to various programs. I can no longer see it in any programs that display running processes and services, and no spyware/antivirus scanners are picking it up.
However, my shutdown now takes ages. Click shut down (or log off, restart) and for a minute Windows is usable as normal- you can use the programs, but not start up any new ones (I get a message saying that the station is shutting down so the process cannot be started). After about a minute it will shut down normally.
Occasionally it has restarted/shut down straight away, but this is the exception rather than the rule. I cannot see any new services.. Ive tried various things. service timeout settings in the registry etc to no avail.
Security Task Manager shows a DLL entry from a program I used (and have no uninstalled) under startup.. "Regrun Script Checker Shell Hook DLL <invalid registry entry>.
Any ideas on the slow shutdown? Any help is appreciated.
Edit: To clarify, I also installed Zonealarm Firewall and Vipre Antivirus as well. Shutdown seems to be odd since then.. I'm not how long I had the trojan for.
