Hello Bleeping Computer.

After downloading FreeSoundRecorder from CNET, I noticed some strange behaviour from my computer, the behaviour was as follows:

1. A connection dialogue box for "VPN connection" kept opening, without me asking to use the VPN
2. Numerous crashes in Win IE8
3. Keyboard input seems slow to respond
4. Internet connection very slow. It is OK from other computer on the network
5. After all this my AVG (3 weeks after installation of FreeSoundRecoder) identified SeekService as virus, it could not remove it.

Before registering with bleeping computer I have run the following - all seemed to come back with negative results:

I deleted the following from my computer:

1) folders containing seekservice and variants of
2) all registry entries containg seekservice

following this I used the following

1) Malwarebytes (MBAM) (latest updates)
2) CCLeaner (latest updates)
3) SDFix
4) ComboFix
5) Windows Defender (latest updates)
6) AdAware (latest updates)
7) Installed latest version (and updates) of AVG V9 and done full scan

Most of the symptoms have now gone, though Web browsing is still painfully slow - I have to use Chrome as IE8 is practically unresponsive, in addition the VPN box popped up once.

I hope I followed the instructions correctly for creating this post (all of the apps (ComboFix etc) I ran prior to coming across the guide to post, so sorry for running that).

As instructed here is my posts for DDS and Root Repeal, also please find zipped and attached the requested file. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.

Thank you for your response, erm I formatted my Hard disk and re installed the OS (win XP - old hat)!

My slow internet connection was due to AVG v9. Since reinstalling my OS, Zone alarm and AVG were first on, after OS updates. Soon as I put AVG 9 on then Internet was really slow, I took it off then Internet was back to normal. I am rolling back to version 8.5 which I ran OK previously - plus AVG 9 is now fat.

Before the format, I think seekservice had well gone, but the AVG v9 was causing slow internet and so I presumed that I still had the SeekService issue after it had gone.

If you think it worthwhile I post the RSIT logs, else you can close the topic.

I do appreciate your reply.
