I just did a factory reset on my pc due to some serious malfunctions caused by a nine-year-old. All well and good. I only downloaded Ninite downloader, Advanced System Care, and HijackThis (along with some add-on programs available from the asc toolbox) on my pc before doing a follow up scan to make sure no pests followed me into the fresh OS. Now, AVG is flagging various svchost.exe processes as multiple generic trojan infections. I can do back to back scans and something pops up, something different, every time. The last one was a generic37.bgxl.dropper at svchost.exe 5176. I'm thoroughly confused. Perhaps someone would be so kind as to take a look for me, before my bank account gets drained or someone logs into my facebook and messes up my GoTA? You all are awesome, thank you for your time and attention. Just let me know what you need from me. I don't wish to attach useless logs and inundate you with things you don't need.

Hi midnightdreams :)

Can you provide us the AVG log where the detections occurs?
