Hi guys, this has been popping up on my AVG for a few days now:

File name:

Threat name: Trojan horse Pakes.AW

Process name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe

Process ID: 964

Also I keep getting new tabs which are usually ads for dating sites etc open in Firefox.

Also I cannot get onto Facebook, I just get this:

Restricted Site!
