All right, so I'm here and I think I'm infected with something. It might be more than one thing, it might be big or small. Well my problems are my 1. computer will not stop shutting down at random times. The only time it shuts down not randomly is when I'm running a scan with any antivirus or spyware program other than Avast. Then I know that it will shut down in the middle of the scan. 2. Computer runs kind of slow. I know this is a basic problem, but I think its running slow due to unconventional means. 3. Internet will not stay connected. I'm kind of hoping its the virus's fault and I won't have to call my provider because it works everywhere else in the house. 4. The one that I hope will bring it all together as one problem. There are these viruses that won't go away permanently. I guess about a week ago I got infected with Outerinfo and then un-installed it. It came back later and I ran Avast and it got rid of some viruses, but not all of them. I used a program called Vundofix V 6.5.1 and it found C:\WINDOWS\system32\awvtq.dll, C:\WINDOWS\system32\qtvwa.bak1 , C:WINDOWS\system32\qtvwa.ini. There are a lot more it finds but that is my most recent scan. Along with this Spybot Search and Destroy finds a problem with Network Monitor in the system and registry key and I can't get rid of it if I'm supposed to. So I was hoping that someone could help me with this problem. I wasn't sure what type of problem this was so I'm also posting the same thing in another area with a hijackthislog.
I thank all who help me and beforehand I would like to say forgive me if I ask some stupid question. It happens to me a lot and I usually just need someone to say the obvious to me. Although I still live by my motto
"What I say is sealed in my words." or a variant of that. (I have it written down, trust me.)
