Last Tuesday, I got a "Windows Security" virus and I thought I removed it by using the steps from bleepingcomputer.com. The real issue began on Monday, when I received a "Generic Host Win32" error. I am not sure if the two are related. After this, my computer starting behaving very strangely. I sometimes have trouble opening new internet explorer windows and when I finally do get one open, it can sometimes refuse to close. Yesterday, I received a blue screen error and the message that "your computer has recovered from a serious error".
The only changes I made to my computer after eliminating the virus was downloading the 2011 update for AVG Free Antivirus program. Since, I have tried to restore my computer to an earlier time and I have run scans with "Malware Bytes" a number of times. The first time, the program found about 137 issues that I promptly cleaned off my system. Since, I have run the program a few times, but no issues were returned. Is there something I need to do to Malware Bytes to detect whatever is messing with my computer? I thought restoring and running the scans fixed the error, but later that day I received another Win32 error. The strange thing is, my computer seems to behaving normally today. I am wondering if anyone can offer some advice as to what to do next here.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
