Two days ago, I accidentally opened a file that is actually some sort of malware. After clicking on it, Windows Defender gave me a warning message saying that it found something (can't remember exactly what it said) and it requested to run a scan. After the scan, it removed one file, but then I proceeded to scan with Ad-Aware and S&D. After removing the files those programs found, some weird things started happening to my computer. First of all, it would run slower than usual. I checked the Performance graphs in Windows Task Manager and my CPU Usage would fluctuate up to 90% even if I don't have any windows opened. There would be random pop-ups when I surf the web with Firefox, and sometimes a random "D:" drive would pop up even though I don't have my external HDD turned on. I also can't modify my folder settings to see hidden files.
After some googling, I downloaded another program called "RegRun Security Suite" and it removed some more files for me, but my computer is still running noticeably slow and the Performance graphs are still fluctuating. Although I have yet to see a random popup from Firefox or the elusive D: Drive again...
I don't know if this would help, but some of the files that were identified by S&D and RegRun were named "sdrgfcvbf.dll," "PWS.LDPinchIE," ".MGT_reg32.dll.vbs," "qgc33ej0ega5.exe," "P2HHR.bat," and "gjbtnb.exe." I googled these and most of the results say these are bad files to have BTW I'm running Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1.
I'm sorry if I'm not providing the enough information but this is my first time posting, and I'm trying to supply as much information as I can recall (like what the sticky thread said to do) If you need more information just ask, I'll be more than happy to comply.
