Hello! I have noticed my computer slowing the last few days. I scanned with AVG, and it found nothing. Same with Spysweeper and Malwarebytes. I noticed ESET mentioned in another topic, so I scanned with that using the online scan. ESET detected several items of concern. I looked in my processes, and noticed 4 to 5 IE windows. The windows are hidden, I only noticed them because I kept getting pop-ups asking me if I wanted to make IE my default browser. I never use IE, I usually only use Chrome or Safari. I turned off my pop-up blocker in my IE, and noticed I started getting popups, several of which seem toe be from, which Spysweeper is attempting to block. I scanned again with MB and AVG, and still got nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is what ESET found:

C:\Documents and Settings\Corey\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\17\54083ad1-785deebc a variant of Java/Exploit.Agent.NAC trojan
C:\Documents and Settings\Corey\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\43\653b7d2b-14d56459 multiple threats
C:\Documents and Settings\Corey\My Documents\Downloads\ophcrack-win32-installer-3.3.1.exe Win32/PSWTool.PWDump6 application
C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\iaStor.sys.vir Win32/Olmarik.SJ trojan

Thank you!
