I'm operating Windows XP with Norton 360 Premiere Edition. I'm not entirely computer illiterate but certainly not fluent.
After about a 10 day trip I booted up the computer and found an error message in a balloon coming from my Malwarebytes icon in the bottom right of the screen.
The error is: Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website: 126.96.36.199
The computer gets progressively slower and slower, and sometimes will freeze with a corrupted screen (looks like the old cga monitors...cyan, magenta, etc)
I purchased MalwareBytes Pro, ran a full scan and found some tracking cookies. I rebooted.
I ran Norton 360 full scan and found nothing.
I ran SUPERAntiSpyware Free and it discovered tracking cookies as well as svchost.exe - fake. I quarantined and removed the files, then rebooted.
I just started up the computer again and am getting the same message.
I started Glary Utilities Process Manager and noticed that I have 6 instances of svchost.exe running, and one of them is running at 554k. It also shows a file called runservice.exe that it notes is dangerous.
A little help?
