EDIT: My operating system is Windows 7 Professional Version 6.1 (Build 7601: SP1)
The symptoms I've noticed so far are:
1. AVG Resident Shield constantly alerts me of this, especially when navigating the Task Manager:
And this, a moment ago:
Also, this is the Resident Shield detection History:
Desktop.ini entries were from when I attempted to scan with other anti virus software. AVG asked to remove them, couldn't, couldn't force remove them either and then asked for a restart. I postponed it until after finishing the scans.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware didn't find anything related to this. It did find some other problems and fixed them.
2. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware does not want to update. I understand that it might be because of the infection.
However, I did manage to update by manually downloading (mbam-rules.exe).
3. Windows Update fails as well.
And Windows Defender seems to hate me too:
I think these are all the symptoms I noticed so far.
Most posts I've read about problems similar to mine include something about DDS and some other information gathering programs. This is my first time dealing with malware this advanced and my experience with such programs is limited. Please excuse my ignorance if it becomes obvious.
Please tell me if I forgot to include anything important.
Thank you very much for your time, I appreciate it.
