I am running a basic Toshiba laptop with XP service pack 2 and AVG and Malwarebyte's Anti Malware on board. Last 3-4 weeks internet connection started to slow down until AntiSpyware2010, braviax amongst others surfaced. Malwarebyte's seems to have cleaned the AntiSpyware even though occasionally it surfaces again.

More worrying for me, most likely, through my ftp sessions viruses have reached my websites on my shared hosting account (no I didn't have any security steps taken there) and currently after reinstalling my websites about half douzen times and reading blogs and forums I fugured out that most likely I am reinfesting the server through the ftp.

Before finding a more secure ftp though I need to clean my machine. The problem with the websites is a script being inserted at the bottom of usually the index.php with long list of numbers resulting in error message.

Hope you can help!
Thank you in advance!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
