I run AVG free, Ad-aware and also have malaware-bites.
I run windows vista 32bit on a Toshiba Equium p300-190, Intel Core 2Duo, 3,00 GB Ram, using a wireless connection.
Originally identifying the problem i put the laptop in safe mode and after scanning the laptop all 3 programs stated all infections were removed, but this is where the problem still lies. The original location of the said infection had managed to embed its self in the windows operating system named "svchost.exe", within the "system 32" sub-folder, i know this usually runs the .DLL files for the operating system as it enables Windows to not have as many executable's running in the background, but it seems that the virus is running through it as well. Even locating the process' using the task manager i cannot identify the main problem to find its location and possibly delete it then on.
My dad had a similar problem and used the program combofix but as is stated i am not a professional so am not going to use unless stated to.
The laptop still performs but as expected at a slower rate any help would be much appreciated .
