In the past week I was able to removal a host of dnschangers and trojans on my computer.  But my internet connection is still experiencing latency issues and I noticed that this may stem from an .exe called Tihevna.exe I found siphoning off my network and making tcp connections.  I am unable to remove or enter the folder for vdswuto due to not having privileges for AppData/local/vdswuto/tihevna.exe. I am the admin account and I have tried to Take Ownership of the folder for vdswuto and vdnewkt and cannot. I need some help with getting rid of these problematic files and folders.

This rootkit is persistent to deletion even as an admin

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
