Like many others on here I seem to have a tricky and persistent infection. It basically cause my computer to freeze up often for no reason. Also, and I not sure this is related or a seperate infection, my google searches are being redirected to misc. sites.
A few notes on the infection, I have run Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, AVG virus, Spyware Terminator and Spyware Doctor....everyone has found something but the problem still persists. Now the reason I think it is an infection is that most of the these programs will not run until I go into the program files and change the executeable file to a different name. Before I can click on them and nothing happens ( except the frequent freezing of the whole computer ) and then once I change the exe name they run fine.
And help would be greatly appreciated as this is my edit suite and main source of income! And I've been messing around with it for three days now trying to get it to run properly and haven't had much luck...although have cleared off numerous files, programs and potential other infections.
Anyways thanks again in advance...once this is fixed ( whether spyware removal or just reformatting everything ) I think the edit suite will now be disconnected from the internet and just used for work!
EDIT: After doing some more research and tests I found the infection to be MSIVXcount and took appropriate steps to clear the infection and everything seems to be back to normal. Thanks to the forums for pointing me in the right direction! Very valuable resource to have these
