Ok so i got this amd turion ii p520 laptop aroud 2 weeks ago and at first it did everything blazing fast but then about a week after there have been random click noises in backgroud even though sound is turned off and ie freezes when i try to scroll when that happens unless i scroll using arrow keys. I fear my computer has hidden processes in the background. I scanned with malwarebytes anti-malware and it turned up with nothing with a full scan during safe mode but i don't think i ran it as administrator though. Also hijack this said a bunch of system files were missing at o24 but i think its cause of lack of compatability to win 7 64-bit right?

Hello, It's seem like you may have a Bootkit Whistler infection.
Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.

Also do the following:

In case you don't have an archive extracter installed already:
Please download 7zip and install the program on your computer (we need this program in order to be able to unzip the tool that can delete Bootkit Whistler).

When 7zip is succesfully installed, please download bootkit_remover.rar and save the file to your desktop.

Right click on the file and select "extract/unzip here".

This will create two readme files and remover.exe on your desktop.
Double click on remover.exe; a command window will open. Please copy/paste the text under "MBR Status" and post that in your next reply.

Let me know if that went well.

Gmer did not work and said some file location followed by "the file location could not be specified".
The 7 extracter program is messed up as it doesn't give an option to extract bootkit_remover.rar from desktop and when i try to extract it by opening 7 file-manager nothing shows for desktop except documents, network and computer. Also if i try to move bootkit_remover.rar to documents so i can extract it, it doesn't create remover.exe.

I posted the dds log and attach.txt at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic346323.html

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic346323.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
