Hello. First of all, apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum, or if it has already been posted (in which case please can someone direct me where to look).

I have recently got some new spyware/malware/trojan or something that keeps on crashing my computer and making it run slower than a tortoise on hash.

The 2 malicious programs are called:

Deskadserv

Deskadkeep

If anyone can tell me how to get rid of these terrible things, i would be most grateful. And please bear with me, i am an amateur at computers.

Thanks a lot in advance :thumbsup:

Are you using these basic security programs?

aČ free-a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware-A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D-Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster-A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard-A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

If that doesn't help:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a couple of days to get a response, the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Without actually researching in depth,
I at least confirmed that either of the
two malicious programs you mentioned do yield
results when google search engine is used.

Perhaps an answer might be found while
you await additional specific attention?
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
