My laptop acted up last night so I did a scan with malwarebytes (which, with a quick scan, found no errors) and AVG. AVG found the errors in the screenshot.


I'm wary about moving/deleting these items, for reasons I'm sure you can deduce.

I haven't done anything other than run a malwarebytes scan and a spybot S&D scan.

You are infected!! These appear to be the files run at startup. I have a similar situation going on.

Boot into safe mode.
Run msconfig and disable all the Startup files in the Startup tab. Under the Boot tab set the system to safe boot with networking.
Download, install and update MalwareBytes to the latest virus definitions. Once that is done do a thorough scan.
Make sure your AV is current, updated and running.

Google crypt.aezo trojan for other sources and information on removing the infection.

I'm thinking I may have to uninstall the infected programs and reinstall them from a known good source.
