A few days ago my laptop was severely infected with a type of malware that identified itself as Malware Doctor. Upon booting up, my laptop would instantly BSOD after a few minutes. I had to boot into safe mode in order to remove Malware Doctor. It seemed to me that I had gotten rid of it completely but now my laptop always has random alerts of viruses within the System32 folder of Windows. They only show up from AVG's resident shield and are not detected when I actually run a scan of the System32 folder. Also, whenever I run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, it comes up with a malware named AGProtect that gets removed but then reappears on reboot only when my internet connection is enabled. It seems that although I've gotten rid of Malware Doctor, it left a ton of other problems... Any help on this issue of reappearing malware is appreciated.

Turn off System Restore,

Open the Control panel
Double click the System icon
Click on the System Restore tab
Turn off System restore

Restart in Safe Mode.
Do a malware scan & remove all it finds.
If you get a message that says you need to restart for somethings to be remomed do so & let it fully restart on it's own.

When that is done do a full scan with AVG & have it set to automatically fix & remove viruses,

>When that is done restart the unit & try it.

If it seems top be OK turn System Restore back on.
