On 10/11/2014 i noticed my computer being slow, I checked Task Manager and noticed that "explorer.exe" was running multiple Images and taking up insane amounts of memory and when I ended the one taking up the most memory a new one started and quickly increased its memory usage until the computer was unusable, when i closed every single one. It started creating A lot of "dllhost.exe" images. 


Now every time i restart my computer a txt document opens and chrome opens and displays this stupid website asking me to pay them in bitcoins (not a chance in hell im going to pay): http://paytordmbdekmizq.tor4pay.com/sUeoU4.


After seeing this i ran Malwarebytes and removed 73 Objects, then ran a full scan with AVG 2015, but didn't find anything. i also went through my hard drive  looking for suspicious programs and removed them.


Today after downloading the dds tool it only game me one log instead of the two, the attach.txt one i ran the tool again and in the tskmgr window and in the description of "dds.exe" it says "DDS, Doesnt do squat" .


So in conclusion i believe i am totally screwed and will end up having to wipe the hard drive& reformat it, along with buying a copy of Windows 7, please help me avoid this...
