Hi folks. I was unfortunate enough to get infected with Win32/Cryptor the other day (courtesy of Facebook!). Anyway, after running AVG, Spyware Doctor, Malwarebytes, Prevx 3.0 etc the virus appeared to have been identified and removed (I still run scans now that detect nothing). I also removed all temporary files via control panel, did a system reboot etc.
However, not only does internet run painfully slow and not work properly, I constantly receive threat alerts that give a folder name with a .tmp extension and a file name of svchost.exe. These then appear in the C/Windows/Temp file area of the laptop. What the hell is going on!!!!!!? Is there still a virus on my computer? Is this a registry error? Am I at risk?
Someone please help! I've tried as much as I can and I'm out of ideas. Any advice into what this is and how to stop it would be appreciated.
