Hello, against my better judgement I downloaded a torrent file downloader, , and since then have had nothing but problems. My computer was taken hostage by a false system check malware. I was able to boot into safe mode and restore my pc from the day before. However, the malware copied over. I downloaded, malware bytes, cccleaner, windows security and Kaspersky. Malware bytes removed a ton of spyware and malware. Windows security did the same. Kaspersky didn't find a virus. However, i kept getting a message from malwarebytes saying that Svchost.exe was trying open a random ip address. I also noticed that If I used google, I would get redirected no matter what I clicked on in my search results. I decided to perform a full factory restore on my pc. I downloaded Microsoft security and performed all updates. However, google is still getting redirected. I tried malwarebytes again and it is still finding a trojan on Svchost but will not clean it. ( it always says it does, but it doesn't) I'm currently running a hardware diagnostic.


Help!!!

Thats for the response. However, since I posted this topic, I found other person on the forums who had a similar problem. I follow the basic steps that they were given and it seemed to solve my problem. The faulty (malware svchost) has been removed and is no longer repopuating.
