Computer infected with I think fake rogue. Ran AVIRA rescue disk, removed virus and computer sort of working. Scan found things in restore. Turned off restore and it is still off. Ran unhide, icons and start menu much better. Finally able to safe mode Malwarebytes-removed some things and AVIRA (only some of it would work). However still having a windows (XP) generic host process for win 32 error box on each boot. AVIRA (upgraded from free to Premium for a trial) is finding 4 hidden objects. Followed their directions and still there.
Notes from AVIRA: A system thread is not visible // A memory modification has been detected.

I am now unsure how to progress!! Can you give me some suggestions?

Hello walker51,as it appears the system may be a bit unstaeble we need to start a new topic and get a deeper look.

Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
