From Avira:
Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Swrort.A.10259 [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe.
Action performed: Deny access
 
Chrome (and only Chrome, as far as I can tell), has been incredibly sluggish in the past few days (specifically after an ill-advised binge of shady sites). Sluggishness includes: delay after typing, long delay after backspacing or highlighting etc.
 
I've run: Malwarebytes, Avira, Superantispyware, Spybot, aswMBR, adwcleaner, junkware removal tool, farbar recovery scan tool, security check, and combofix. 
 
I also uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome a few times, and even used system restore (which seemed to work for a short period of time, before Avira started popping up that Chrome was the trojan). Also notable is that svchost is taking up 520mb of ram, which is unusually high.
 
Sorry/Thanks!

I've attached my OTL logs.

 

By the way

Edit--nevermind, that's probably wrong, but it can't hurt for me to have linked that anyway (in theory though, that issue was solved).

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
