hi,yesterday i scanned my comp and found the following type of threats:
trojan horse
for adware.purityscan a reboot was required.so i rebooted my comp and to my surprise the computer slowed down than before,slower than the time the threats were not detected and were probably active.i suspect sth happened in between rebooting process.
Now the conditions are worse in my comp.i close a window the cpu usage races up to 80%.when i try open a game the cpu usage rockets upto 100% and the comp restarts.it looks as if the virus attache itself to applications and system processes and even anti virus program and thus making it unable to detect by the antivirus although up to date.it looks like it attaches itself to the AV and takes control over it thus an up to date antivirus cant detect it.
i have formatted my c drive with different Os but the problem presists.Any help?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
