Just last night AVG scanned and found another trojan. Three of them are in the System Volume information tab but I can't get access even after I followed a microsoft guide. The other is in a windows file causing me to get an error message on startup:
C:\WINDOWS\dmswmd.dll the specified file could not be found.
As of last night I had a sudden onset of problems. My pc was extremely slow, internet explorer only worked on the first tab and AVG detected this last trojan. I tried to do a system restore but there was only one restore point (for earlier on the day when the new trojan was detected). All my other restore points were gone (I hadn't checked but I set it to use as much data as it wanted and apparently there were no other restore points ever but May 12th...) Downloaded Avira which found 3 more trojans. When I rebooted it takes ages to load if it loads at all and internet explorer has set facebook has the homepage (and only accessible page) and this cannot be changed...
I don't really know what to do. I will do a system reboot if necessary but it will require me to back up 120 gig or so of data onto a hard disk which will probably take hours given the state of my pc I don't understand how this happened so quickly to be honest - my PC is barely starting now and the old blue XP toolbar thing looks like the old windows grey one.
I appreciate this isn't ideal but give me a shout for more info - I'll do my best.
