I wondered if someone could help me...


When my laptop wakes up from being on standby I get 14-20 alerts for various URL:Mal in  system32/svchost.exe. I ran avast and it found 36 issues which it 'fixed', althought none of these appeared to be the URL:Mal that pops up.  I have also run Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, junkyard, hitman and adw cleaner. When these were run initially they found a few bits and then cleaned them but the issues continue. 

Any help would be amazing!
