I have a Toshiba Laptop that is running Windows 7 right now that I bought last October. I noticed everything was freezing up and moving slowly about a month ago. I usually run Nortons and I uninstalled and installed PC Tools Spyware Doctor with Antivirus and I did find a few things. I googled my problem on problem on yahoo and remembered Spybot Search and Destroy, it found a virus called Smithfraud-c-generic. I removed it and came back just as usual. So I searched my phone and found this site. You guys recommended downloading MalWarebyte and it found the following:
Files Detected: 2
C:\TDSSKiller_Quarantine\14.05.2012_17.57.15\mbr0000\tdlfs0000\tsk0002.dta (Rootkit.Agent.Gen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Users\Grownups\Downloads\FastDownload.exe (Affiliate.Downloader) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
Now how do I know that it was successfully deleted? Firefox was freezing up constantly and I won't use IE. And it said my registry was clean. I also ran it in Safe mode when I ran the scan. I guess my question to you is, where do I go from here? And do I know it's fixed? Please keep in mind I am not computer savvy so you may have to dumb it down with me in order for to understand where to go next.
Thank you so much and if you have any questions, I will try to answer them as best as possible.
