PC specs:

Vista Home Basic Sp2


Satellite L355

CPU: Genuine Intel® CPU 585 @ 2.16Ghz

Ram: 3GB

System 32 bit


(I know this pc is outdated. It should be recycled, but it serves a purpose)


I accidentally deleted my main and only admin account, which created a ton of permission problems. So, I decided to lose all my files, and do a clean install of vista. (or so I thought).


After re-installing vista, I installed all windows updates first, then installed java, adobe flash, adobe reader, mozilla firefox, ccleaner, Malwarebytes, and AVG free.


I updated and ran a full scan with MBAM, and it found nothing.


Then I closed MBAM, and ran a full AVG free scan. It found this:

Severity: HIGH

Trojan horse Patched_c.ADKY


AVG Removed This Trojan.


So, I disabled AVG and ran the following online scanners:


I ran TDSSKiller, and it found nothing.

I then ran an Eset online scan, and it found nothing.

I then ran Bit Defender Online scan, and it found nothing.

I then ran Norton security scan, and it found nothing.


One problem I'm having is occasionally when I visit a website I encounter this:



The second problem is a freezing screen. The only way to unfreeze the screen is to do a hard reboot, and connect an external display, and press FN F5 to change the main display to the external display.


Can someone help to figure out what is going on? Is the problem a system configuration problem, or am I infected.
