Hi,
I had the "XP Restore" malware attack two weeks back, which I could clean with MalwareBytes. But following that, I have been getting infected by one after another virus.

My google searches have been getting redirected to random sites. Then I started getting the error message that "system32.exe" had an issue, and it's going to shutdown my machine. AVG, Spybot and MsSecurityEssential scan found nothing. However following the install of those antivirus, my laptop has become extremely slow. I found that "MsMpEng.exe" was taking excessing CPU, and I removed MsSecurityEssential. But now "wuault.exe" and "svchost.exe" is taking almost entire cpu bandwidth. Occasionally the image "system" consumes 100% bandwidth. I tried various help posted for similar issues in the past, but in vain.

I have got SymantecEnpointProtection installed lately, and it finds nothing.

I badly need some expert help.

Thanks in advance.
