Hi, 

 

First of all, apologies in advance for my lack of basic computer knowledge. I'll do my best to provide as much information as needed. 

 

I'm currently running Windows 7 64-bit and my computer's been slowing to a crawl over the last few days. I'm strongly suspicious of some persistent malware or viruses, but as of yet AVG and Microsoft Security Essentials have had no luck picking anything up. There are currently 4 unexplained instances of Internet Explorer 10 running in my processes tab that vary in memory use from 0 to several MB, and I think this is the issue. Upon ending these processes they renew themselves. There's also a self-renewing Adobe ® Flash ® Player Installer/Uninstaller which also strikes me as a potential culprit.

 

I've just run Roguekiller and it's found a bunch of suspicious items but, as my computer knowledge is sorely lacking, I'm not quite sure what to do about these. I I've attached poorly cobbled together screenshots of the positive results. If you need me to post an official log of the results I'd be happy to, but you might have to tell me how. 

 

Regards

Ollie

Oh! Here is the Roguekiller report. Any advice on corrective action would be much appreciated.
