Hi, I have been trying to resurrect my old laptop but it seems to be full of viruses.
I can connect to the internet, but I can't access antivirus sites using any browser.
I managed to download Malwarebytes' anti-malware using my other computer and this showed lots of viruses, which it quarantined. Subsequent scans were clean but ... still no access to antivirus websites.
Doing more scans later (next day) with Malwarebytes showed a number of viruses again.
I did a scan with GMer, and it said that it suspected a rootkit in svchost.exe. I don't know what to do about this, because the options are to disable the service or delete it, which I'm pretty sure I shouldn't do!
I don't have the original install discs anymore - any suggestions?
