After finally getting the internet back (i havent been online at home for over 9 months!) I have been noticing some bugs that are appearing. The second day i was online i noticed the program spyware protect 2009 had been installed. It said that i was infected with spyware (I thought this was quite funny ). Spyware doctor couldnt pick it up so after some googling I quickly found the files and deleted it. Problem solved!
I then noticed some random things happening on my computer:
1) Svchost.exe starts running at 100% when i start up the system. (Im not sure if this is correct but i have 5 svchost.exe running at once in my task mananger)
2) When watching full screen videos or when in a game, it will exit the window. Its like another blank window is opening over the top of the one im viewing, but nothing opens. This also happens when on firefox, explorer, Adobe Reader, etc.
3) Windows firewall starts in the Off mode.
I then downloaded AVG and it found a collection of viruses and trojans. All were deleted apart from about 7 different infected svchost.exe files.
I also downloaded spybot search and destroy and malwarebytes anti-malware but after they have installed they will not open (This is also the same for combofix). They dont even register on the task manager.
It has been a week since I deleted spyware protect 2009 and today it was back on my system. Problem 1, has stopped (apart frm the many svchost processes) , but 2) and 3) are remaining.
Any suggestions to get Anti-Malware and search and destroy working?
Thank you advance
Edit - Woops, im using windows XP!
