It started a week or so ago with new windows opening on their own and if I click on a link from a Google search page I get redirected.
I've run AVG, Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but there's one thing I am unable to eliminate
Infection: "Virus identified Win32/Patched.CG"
Result: Object is white-listed (critical/system file that should not be removed)
But there must be a way, I just don't know how to do this. I'm somewhere between being computer illiterate and having just enough knowledge to be dangerous.
I'm running Windows XP Home, SP3 and I had to rebuild my computer (with telephone guidance from my brother-in-law) last September when it was infected so badly it just stopped being of use.
On another note - shouldI start a separate topic? - my CPU usage hangs at 100% so often that my machine seems completely non-responsive. Are the two related?
Thanks for the help anyone can give me.
