My computer was recently infected, and I cleaned most of the programs out with ewido, but every time I press the CTRL button, the computer attempts to start microsoft office, the ALT button attempts to start calc.exe, and whenever i click on a couple folders (the ones i believe are infected still) my computer puts itself into standby mode. This also happens if I open internet explorer - I recieve a pop-up message about some sort of malware trying to install (sysprotect) and if i cancel the installation my computer puts itself into sleep mode again. After poking around on the internet I have heard that these might be global or keyboard hooks, I'm not sure if thats what they are or if there is any way to remove them. Any suggestions?
