I initially downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware, then after months I was advised to use AD-AWARE SE and just a while ago I downloaded SPYBOT as advised by bleepingcomputer. but still outlook.vbs is alive. my internet runs slowly even if 100mbps i'm afraid this virus is causing it. could it be? My AVG FREE anti-virus is not healing viruses anymore. thank you HJT Team.

Info on your infection:

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
