I have recently been recovering my system from an Antivirus Soft infection. I used Malwarebytes Anit-Malware to remove all the infected files it could find. Things are ging fairly well, but I am occasionally getting my Internet browsers redirected/pop ups (both IE and Firefox). Also, after a popup has been deleted, something is devouring my CPU usage (svchost.exe is between 50%-70%).

I have decided I am in over my head and need some guidance in detecting and ridding myself of this. Please advise me what logs/scans need to be ran.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
