Occasionally, when I am starting up it will freeze when the green bar is going across.
It also happens when I am installing updates, which is pretty weird.
MalwareBytes is always clean, same for SuperAntiSpyware and Windows Defender.

I have no antivirus and thats a long story that I don't feel like getting into.
Once, when I ran a scan with the online Live OneCare antivirus thing, it found "Win32.Backdoor.Afcore.gen!b". I believe that was the name.
It told me I was "likely infected", and that it couldn't clean it and left me on my own.

What could I possibly do now. ?!
It's been freezing for the longest time now and it's getting so annoying.
BUT. It hasn't been freezing since I ran the scan. It's been doing that for much longer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.(:

It comes up with nothing all the time. SuperAntiSpyware is just a problem for my computer so I am not going to bother with it.

Hello I would suggest that if you do not want an antivirus installed the you get several Online AV scanners bookmarked for almost daily use.
ESET Online Scan; No installation required.
Please run a free online scan with the ESET Online Scanner

Note: You will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.

Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
Click Start
When asked, allow the ActiveX control to install
Click Start
Make sure that the options Remove found threats and the option Scan unwanted applications is checked
Click Scan
Wait for the scan to finish
Use Notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

It comes up with this message..
Error: cannot initialize OnlineScanner. Administrator rights required.
I am the administrator!

Hi go to the Eset sit again.

IN IE browser toolbar click Tools then Internet Options
Select Security tab then click Trusted sites
Now click the blue Sites Button
uncheck the box "Require server verification"
Close


Try again

Are you opening it with IE?
Try turning off your firewall but ONLY for this. This will tell us if the firewall is blocking it..

Or try Kaspersky
Please perform this online scan: Kaspersky Webscan
Read the Requirements and Privacy statement, then select "Accept"
A dialogue box will appearing asking "Do you want to install this software?" Name: kavwebscan_unicode.cab
Select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls that allows ActiveScan to run.
When the download is complete it will say ready, click "Next"
Select a target to scan: Click on "My Computer"
When the scan is complete choose to save the results as "Save as Text"
Post the Kaspersky scan results in your next reply, along with a new Hijackthis log.
