Anyway, down to the matter at hand. It seems that I have contracted a "ZCREW BACKDOOR" trojan of sorts, and I found this out when I was tinkering with my copy of Fix-it Utilities start up manager. The program told me as such, "ccreg" (name of the program) is using copious amounts of data, and in the description it clearly stated that this (program) was added by ZCREW BACKDOOR. (screenshot attached).
I did a quick google search on what "zcrew backdoor" was and found it to be malicious content. I have tried AVG (fee) but to no avail, the program doesn't recognize a threat. I have also tried malawarebytes and it too hasn't found the trojan or virus named zcrew.
Moreover, in spite of these efforts, it seems Fix-it still has the file "ccreg" functioning, and draining resources.
I was hoping someone could give me some direction? I was contemplating buying a full edition of some anti-virus but would like to know if that will help (and what brand to buy). And if there is any way I could solve this problem on my own? I have seen some threads about downloading some file modification programs that would help, or if you require any readouts, etc. please let me know.
Oh and I forgot to mention it was on windows 7 64 bit.
Thank you again, your efforts are very much appreciated.
