But there are other things that are creating problems. Mainly, when I start my computer I have HitmanPro run automatically. And is says that a Rootkit(?) by the name of afd.sys, is on my computer, but cannot remove it.
I also have a process by the name of Ping.exe that seems to take over the CPU and keep re-starting itself when stopped via the Task Manager. In addition, I get browser redirects in FireFox.
I read another post (Ping.exe and other Trojans) where the author was instructed to perform steps 6-9 in a Preparation Post; and I have performed steps 6-8. But during the 8th step, GMER froze once and froze the system the second time I tried to run it. It definitely found suspicious files, but never made it to a point where I could save the log.
Hope this is enough information, and thanks in advance for your help!
