Hi there,
About a month ago I somehow got infected with "Antivirus Soft". This was completely out of the blue, and I have no idea what triggered it.. I hadn't been onto any dodgy websites or anything.

I came on here to find removal instructions for "Antivirus Soft" and managed to remove it (I think I did anyway) with Malwarebytes' AntiMalware.

All seemed normal until the other day when my computer's fan started to get louder and speed up. The "Desktop Security 2010" program popped up on my computer. Like my previous issue with "Antivirus Soft" this was completely out of the blue.

"Desktop Security 2010" was a lot more difficult for me to remove. It took quite a few scans with Malwarebytes' AntiMalware to eventually find all of the infections related to this virus.

I thought all was well after that but after turning my computer on today AVG has notified me multiple times of randomly named .exe files that are 'Heuristic Trojans' (or something like that)? The process name of these .exe's are related to any other .exe that loads up for example if I open Spybot Search & Destroy then an "infected file" will pop up according to AVG, with the process name being something related to a Spybot Search & Destroy .exe file.

I've tried moving these .exe's to the Virus Vault of AVG but they keep multiplying. I have no idea where they're coming from. I do have some computer knowledge but not too much so I am somewhat hesitant to mess around with various settings.

Please help me out guys, haha.
Thanks in advance,

PS: I hope this is the right section, sorry if it isn't.
