Since then I've installed Ad-Aware, Superantispyware, MalwareByes Anti-Malware and scanned with all three and each one found various trojans which they quarantined and which I removed. I also searched with Nod32 and it found nothing at all.
I did some more research on my problem and found out that I might be infected with Vundo but this is just a wild guess. However I did a search with Spybot - Search & Destroy and it did find a Vurtomondo (or if it was called something else..I read that its like Vundo) and removed it and rebooted my PC but none of this worked.
All programs have the latest updates but none of these were done in safemode. I downloaded a program called VundoFix and it found one threat (when I used it in safe mode) and rebooted the PC but the problem didn't get solved.
One common problem to Vundo infection was a security hole in Java-related applications so I uninstalled these and reinstalled them but the problem is still there. I cleaned my registry as well to see if it would make any change but no change at all. I'm out of ideas of what to do
Help would be highly appreciated.
I would also like to add that my PC has been working really slow lately (sometimes it can take over 15 seconds just to open a .txt file)...while this could of something else (lack of space in my harddrive perhaps) it occured around the same time I got infected...so its most likely because of the infection.
