A number of problems have recently developed with my Sony Vaio laptop:
1. 'svchost' exceptions which occur after logging on;
2. URL redirection to shopping sites;
3. AVG 9.0 update failures;
3. Malwarebytes forced shutdown.
I posted the details onto the AVG forum as it seemed to be related to upgrading from AVG 8.5 to AVG 9.0 Anti-Virus Free Edition:AVG forum post
However, I have tried all the suggested fixes but, unfortunately, none has worked.
The symptoms seem very similar to those posted by Kenickie on this BB:Infection that shuts down Malwarebytes, Proving very difficult to remove!
I would be very grateful for any assistance in tracking this one down - presumably it could also be logging keystrokes.
