Can't seem to shake some viruses/malware and pc abnormalities. Please assist.
Windows 7 x64 OS Laptop.
I had the virus that says "C: Drive drive critically full and requires purchase of security software" upon bootup. Might be called Hard Drive diagnostic Virus?. It apparently also hides all files moving your shortcut links to the temp folder. Seemed to fix that using Gridsoft (sp?) trojan killer but in doing so lost shortcuts for program files etc.. Also, Windows Defender was turned off and can't turn back on it just hangs. The PC is running exceptionally slow (slow boot, slow ie/chrome). Internet searches are randomly redirected and audio spyware ads with no pop-ups keep occurring. These pop-ups and redirects happen total random with apps running or not and regardless of search engine.
Also have problem with all my autodesk software licenses now popping up as invalid.
Steps thus far.
Ran Gridsoft Trojan killer - Found trojan and dleters
Deleted Hosts file
Ran MAMB (in Safe-mode and normal) - Found and removed 3 Trojans
Ran MAMB - Clean
Ran Superantispyware - Found and quarantined 3 Viruses and tracking cookies
Ran Superantispyware - Clean
Rolled back IExplorere from 9 to 8.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
