I had been using AVG & found it adequate. I got this computer in fall 2009 with Windows 7 32-bit on it. Since then, I've been using Microsoft Security Essentials.
But it never found anything, until this month.

Nov 21, I decided to try AVG again. D/Led the 30 day trial version & ran it. It found 4 Trojans in less than an hour. There was a "buy right now" sales pitch - pushy already; I was suspicious. Deleted AVG on 26th.

Dec 30, I found right away that my computer is infected with a serious, really active bit of Malware/virus. I don't know its name; it apparently settles into or at least uses a directory in Windows ... C:\\Windows\sysWOW\dllhost.exe is said to be the culprit. MalwareBytes was continuously blocking "ads," I guess they are, generated by dllhost.exe? Try as I may, I've not been able to do anything about it.
(Update: I bought & used Malwarebytes in 2014, March thru July I think. It used a lot of CPU while running. Slowed me down. I thoughtlessly deleted it ... at least, I think I did.)
The very frequent message that Malwarebytes is blocking outgoing "stuff" must have been generated by the virus itself, as MWB wasn't on here at that time. My CPU was running at=close to 100%. The main user seemed to be C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe.

Dec 31, MSE found something!: Trojan:Win32/Powessere.A!reg - "severe, active." I said Remove it.

Jan 1, MSE found Trojan:Win32/Powessere.A!reg - "severe, active" again. I said Quarantine it. I was in over my head.
I'd "lost" my trusted computer tech in 2009 & hadn't bothered to find someone else. Looked around, found a recommended one, but about 25 miles away. I took my computer to them on Friday, January 2. (50 mile round trips are no longer on my activity list.)

Jan 6: Computer was fixed & then relapsed; Windows(or-Internet?) Explorer didn't work again. They wanted to wipe the HD & reinstall Windows. I said No, 'cause my many data files are scattered about in different folders. Pretty sure I couldn't find them all. So they installed a new HD Local Disk C:\, plus something called Recovery D:\, & my original HD became OS E:\. They warned that this move would be somewhat destructive ... and it was. But at least, the Trojan was gone(?).
Windows 7 64-bit is what I now had. Instead of MSE, they sold me McAfee Intel Antivirus.

Saturday, Jan 10, computer came home. 8 days in the shop.
Windows Explorer couldn't see or show most of my stuff, especially my software. So I began reinstalling the things I use daily. That evening, I was playing my online game. At one point, it crashed, & I saw a brief message about "Display Driver --"

Jan 12, McAfee Intel, popped up & said it wasn't doing anything & the Firewall was down. I clicked buttons to put it to work, then registered it. Discovered I now had VipreRescue on Drv E. ... By 6:00 p.m., my CPU was running at=close to 100%. I knew I was infected, reinfected again. Culprit: C:/Users/Jteran/AppData/LocalLow/Microsoft/tlibubmaehm/nkkvbawfc/hgoydlgey. I could not see it at first; AppData didn't show up until I typed it in.

Long story short: My hgoydlgey behaves exactly the same as described in Spoof Google Chrome Processes & Other Badness, Started by 337stat
I reaquired Malwarebytes. Ran it. It found Trojans.
