Hi There:

i was downloading a program of cnet and all the add on stuff with the installer has been installed onto my computer :(.

i have managed to remove most of it (i think) but my computer and the internet has become noticably slower. McAfee and MBAM did not detect anything but superantispyware detected 4 cookies and the ESET online scanner detected: Win32/InstallCore.D variant.

my hotmail is not signing out properly and there are numerous svchost.exe programs running (one taking up over 200,000K) this has been going for sometime but after the install: internet explorer 9 (64bit) keeps closing windows stating there is a malfunctioning or malicious add on.

im not sure if there is an infection but this has recently happned so i am suspicious.

Specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
4GB RAM
MBAM
McAfee Total Protection
Quad core processors.

dds will not run on my pc so i cannot include in my post.
