While in the middle of defragmenting my Laptop HDD I got called in to a work emergency and left my laptop running at which point my teenage son accessed the laptop stopped the defrag and went on to access the internet on sites he does not have access to on his desktop due to parental lockouts I had imposed.

a few days later I noticed a few strange incidents such as my firewall being turned off, web pages not opening as quickly or not at all, some of my anti virus functions not working properly or locking up, etc. On re-enabling my firewall I could not access my CCTV's web server anymore from any of the PC's on my Network as all the port settings had either been changed or deleted.

I have disconnected the laptop from the internet, uninstalled my AVG anti virus, installed Malwarebytes Anti Malware scanned the system and quarantined everything that was found.

I then ran Spybot S & D which found nothing.

On re-booting the laptop I ran MBAM again and it found 1 Trojan.Agent (ie3.tmp) so I quarantined that I also looked in the temp folder and saw that there were multiple other ie#.tmp & in#.tmp files there which were not picked up by MBAM. These can all be deleted manually with the exception of at least 1 file that is reported as in use and cannot be accessed. So I use MBAM's fileAssassin to delete that one.

However, on every reboot these all return in various quantities and often differing name# combinations.

How can I clear these permanently ?
