Yesterday avg told me that it detected a irp hooks. I looked into it and ran mbam it found some malware (some file downloader that i didn't download on purpose anyway)

But just because i havent cleaned up this computer in four years i decided to reinstall windows (i know jumping the gun). Unfortunetly it wasn't installing from cd boot so i reinstalled in windows (realized it wasn't going to format but it was allready going). After installation i cleaned up all my old windows files and download mbam again it found some more Trojan/Malware in files that were in the recyclebin (from old windows directory) which i manually deleted. Just to be safe i ran it again it found nothing.


But i am experienceing problems with the windows update feature (it won't download) and i just had a blue screen of death.


So i downloaded gamer just to follow up.
