everytime i start my computer a small internet explorer browser comes up that has no exit and i cant right-click on it. it opens up three sites connected side by side : loadingwebsite.info , linkmutant.com , & enterstep.com .
my svchost.exe file is running at 100% CPU and when i decided to just end it, the web browser/pop-up goes off as well. thats why i figure its my svschost.exe file. though now my googletalkplugin is running high as well as just about everything else. usually about three things run in my task manager above 10,000 k's of memory usage but now everything is. ive used ccleaner in order to clean out my temp files as someone else suggested, ive scanned with malwarebytes and it found 3 Backdoor.PWin.Gen files. One was in my registry, one was hiding behind or was my svchost.exe and one was hiding behind/was my windows maintenance.

Sometimes when I'd leave my computer on, go to sleep, wake up the next morning and my computer would be off without being set to go off. So last night I stayed awake and svchost.exe was running at full CPU and sure enough (probably because my fan is broke in my laptop) my laptop became so overheated it shut down without warning. So I turned a external fan on it and ran malwarebytes again and it found Trojan.Agent, PUP.Hacktool.Patcher, Dont.Steal.Our.Software, and Riskware.Tool.CK all infecting my system restore points.

I've scanned with malwarebytes again and nothing is found, ive scanned in safemode (a couple of other sites suggested)and still nothing, ive scanned with superantispyware and nothing was found, and ive scanned with spyware doctor and microsoft security essentials and nothing was found. the only way i know that something is still wrong is because when i turn on my computer the ad/webpage still appears and my svchost.exe file still runs at full CPU. 4 times ive started my computer and not been able to do anything because windows updates would start and then freeze everyting. And just a couple of minutes ago my computer restarted by itself.

I'm willing to attach a screenshot of the site/ad.
Though since it wasnt asked of I'm just attaching the hijackthis log.

Somethings to remember while we are working together.

  • Do not run any other tool untill instructed to do so!
  • Please Do not Attach logs or put in code boxes.
  • Tell me about any problems that have occurred during the fix.
  • Tell me of any other symptoms you may be having as these can help also.
  • Do not run anything while running a fix.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

Click on the Watch Topic Button and select Immediate Notification and click on proceed, this will help you to get notified faster when I have replied and make the cleaning process faster.

In order for me to see the status of the infection I will need a new set of logs to start with.

    Please disable any anti-malware program that will block scripts from running before running DDS.

    • Double-Click on dds.scr and a command window will appear. This is normal.
    • Shortly after two logs will appear:
    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt
