Hello, I have a laptop running xp home. the computer is super slow after the log in screen. Ive installed avg, sas and malware antibytes however when i try to run them the computer freezes after 10 min or so. Ive ran rkill and it found two .exe files in folder 2.tmp i believe. when i run the software in safe mode it finds nothing. ive delt with computers for awhile and can tell you this is a serious rootkit/virus. any ideas on what i can do next, im trying my best not to reinstall the os. thanks for any info.

Try running rkill and then immediately scan with Malwarebytes.
