I run Ad-Aware almost everyday, everytime it says I have "malware.psguard", I delete it, it's back again. I have the Windows Defender Beta 2, every time it runs, I have winhound, but it can't be removed. I DID look at other posts on how to remove these before I posted this, but they all said that I would have pop ups and my desktop changed but I've never experienced any of this. I am however experiencing slower computer performance, and one time I got a really strange message that said "Don't close this window" or something to that effect. I also have McAfee Firewall and Virus Scan, newest versions and definitions. I did also run SpyBot Search And Destroy, it found winhound but couldn't remove it either. If all winhound and/or psgaurd does is try to get me to buy something, I'm not really too concerned, but is it likely this is related to my slow computer? It seems like I've been finding psgaurd since before this happened, and it seems to be getting worse. Thanks :thumbsup:

This thread might be better placed here:


and if you can include a HiJackThis log it might help.
