Over the last day or so I've noticed AVG giving me threat notices for something called "Exploit Blackhole Exploit Kit (type 1889)". The most recent threat notice identifies the file name as "r8cm.co.cc/index.php ?tp=8e5bc13421c553f2", the process name as "C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\Uth.exe" and the process ID as 2340.
This morning AVG found one infection - Trojan horse FakeAV.KQZ - and one warning - "Found registry key with reference to file C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\ipg.exe. It cleaned both and stuck them in the virus vault.
I ran SUPERAntiSpyware as well this morning and it cleaned up a bunch of adware and malware; I've also ran SUPERAntiSpyware a couple of times since and it STILL detects a bunch of adware and malware (42 Adware.Tracking Cookies and 2 Malware.Traces in the most recent scan).
I've run Spybot Search and Destroy as well a couple of times and it found malware each time; the most recent scan found the following Malware - Win32.FraudLoad.edt.
Should adware and malware continue to pop up, even immediately after a cleaning? Is there an underlying virus infection or something else that's making my system vulnerable?
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
I am using Windows Vista Home Premium Version 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2)
