So I recently came across a program called 'DVDVideoSoft' and I downloaded the youtube to mp3 converter. The program works.

After downloading 'FREE' youtube to mp3 converter, I noticed that my computer got slower especially when browsing the internet, I downloaded Spybot : SAS and found that my reg keys were infected with malware. However, I was not able to restore my 1 year old labtop to its current state, because my labtop's internet connection is STILL slow. Accessing my siblings labtop and using the internet turned out to be very fast..

So I did my research on sites such as

And many reviewers claim that DVDVideoSoft contains malware/trojans/spybot. I've been freaking out for the past 16 hours seeing as how I do not want my personal information stolen from facebook or online games..

So what I did was scan on Malwarebytes - nothing
Scanned via safe mode on Malwarebytes - nothing
Downloaded Spybot : SAS - Found reg keys were infected with malware, cookies - deleted
System restore.
Rescanned everything, same results. (safe mode too)
Downloaded Avast! and scanned, found two malware programs - deleted (scanned in safe mode after - nothing)
My computer was slow, and I removed Spybot, Avast from my computer.
System restored again seeing as how my computer was still slow..
Used bitdefender online scan - nothing.

As of now, I do not know what to do.....I want to play my online games such as WoW but I do not want my password getting keylogged....... So am I safe??

Images of my processes (if it matters) is here...
