Hi, I'm new to this site but need help with removing a nasty virus from my computer. I have Windows Vista. I just found this on Monday and think it's been on for about 2-3 weeks?? I have Malware bytes on this computer and it wouldn't run. Windows defender had an error and my security center was turned off and wouldn't turn back on. My AVG scan rand and found a trojan and did as instructed to remove it, but it's still there. I downloaded Spydoctor free version and I kept seeing it block Rootkit.tdss however when Spydoctor did a scan it didn't show my any rootkit virus' that it found. I googled and someone recommended SuperAntiSpyware, so I downloaded that and after my computer shut down by itself 3 times I finally got it downloaded and a scan complete and it showed me about 75 rootkits were found and about 4 trojans. I did as instructed to remove them and then it asked to reboot so I did. They are still there and my computer still keeps shutting off by itself when I try to scan again. I am not very computer smart so is it possible for me to remove this from my computer? I read that these are different on every computer?
