I am running Windows XP Home Edition with sp3 installed. The computer (my son's) would not turn off properly and when I tried to run adaware, the scan would stall. I also have purchased and run spyware doctor w/antivirus and registry mechanic. After some research on the internet, I downloaded malwarebytes, avg 8.5 and superantispyware. Running malwarebytes in safe mode (I know I shouldn't have done that) the program identified several virtuomonde trojans and removed them. However, when I do a full scan of spyware doctor, adaware or malwarebytes, the scans are slow and ultimately the computer freezes (although not the mouse). If you need more data please advise.
