XP Media Center - SP3
Seems sluggish so I installed (this PC had no active antivirus) and ran MSE. It detected and removed 2 Trojan Downloaders - ASX/Wimad.DC and ASX/Wimad.AZ.
I then ran a full Malwarebytes scan which found a Trojan Bredolab and removed it.
It was better, but still seemed less than ideal, so I downloaded ComboFix 188.8.131.52. After disabling MSE's Real-Time scanning I ran it, and after going through the Recovery Console setup and the restore points creation it got to the screen where it informs me that scan times for badly infected machines may easily double.
Nine hours later it was still on that screen. I redownloaded a fresh copy of CF (I experienced problems downloading it yesterday on all 3 PCs we have here, so I thought the application might be corrupted in some way), and rebooted into safe mode. It still stopped before it hit Stage 1.
I then ran a current install of TDSSKiller. It found no malicious objects at all. I then renamed ComboFix and tried running it again in safe mode. No change - stopped before Stage 1.
Included are the 2 logs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The other thing I noticed is that about a half hour after I last attempted to run ComboFix in safe mode. I opened taskmge, and saw that a CF process called grep.3xe continued to use increasing amounts of RAM. I finally killed the process after it hit just under 400 Mb, so I don't know what that means.
And BTW, I can find no option for any sort of spell checking (which your guide suggested I use before posting).
