I initially got infected by the antimalware doctor. I then installed Malwarebytes to remove the malware. It was able to detect several malware and trojans and seemed to have removed them. Afterwards, I keep getting problems the svchost.exe Application host error. Proceeded to run HijackThis and found a strange entry in the registry. I was able to locate the key but was not able to remove it. Ill-advised I ran combofix. It detected a rootkit and tried to remove it. Even after doing so, still having issues with the machine. I would get random pop-ups in both iexplorer and firefox. Computer seems sluggish and with a svchost process eating 99% of the cpu sometimes. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.
