Hi. On my desktop computer while randomly surfing the web, my computer antivirus popped up and said my computer was infected with Trojan.dropper/SVChost-fake. After quarantining and "removing" the Trojan with SUPERANTISPYWARE free edition and restarting my computer, I scanned my desktop again and found that the superantispyware detected the same trojan. For two days afterward, my desktop ran all right. But, on the 3rd day, it started getting slower and slower. Now it is so slow that it takes 5-10 minutes just for the program icons and the toolbar to appear on the main screen. Also, I am unable to run superantispyware all the way through a scan, for a problem message pops up and the superantispyware window disappears. I am also unable to install malwarebytes on my desktop. I have no idea how to fix this, and all the rest of the help for this Trojan on the internet has not worked. Please help!!!!!!!

well, I have now found the solution to this problem. I called DELL support and the service man there was able to log onto my computer and fix the problem. For having two years of service if any problem comes up on my desktop, I paid $150, and I can tell you it was well worth it.

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
