mm..this is my first time here, sorry if problems like this have been solved already in the past. Also, I've noticed that it seems there are other people complaining about slow computer recently.

Since yesterday, my PC has been running very slowly. Programs that normally run smoothly becomes lagging and occasionally freezes. Windows Live Messenger is running (it's shown running in the Task Manager), but the window won't show. Some searching fixed this problem, but the lagging and the occasional freeze still happens (at least until yesterday. I haven't got the guts to open too many programs) D:

Just this morning, I've got messages from Avast saying that my computer has been infected with Win32:Vundrop. I've already deleted it. What does this virus do? Avast said it's a Dropper, but what can it do?

And, I've attempted to do some online scanning with ActiveScan/Panda, but it got stuck at some point until now, exactly at this file :

C:\System Volume Informat...}\RP350\A0064814.exe (Can't get the full address, sorry x_X;)
Another attempt of googling seems to indicate that this file is an adware (in fact, that attempt is what brought me here, and other sites I'm still opening) and attempts of deleting the file manually has failed (when I tried to open the folder it goes 'Access is denied') Also, past certain point of scanning, my browser goes...weird. Like, when switching windows, images of the previous windows (even screenshots) still retains until you scrolled the tab, or hovering the mouse pointer at objects.. I wonder why? Should I continue the scanning, or retrying it, or just stop it? I'd tried it twice, the first one ended with Firefox crashing at 20%, and this one....went stuck at 20% too. I don't know whether if it's stuck on the same file or not.

I hadn't used HijackThis since I thought I'm going to wait till the scanning finished before using it, but should I use HijackThis first, then scanning later?

thanks :)

I would like to notify that I've asked other forums (TechSupport Forum) for assistance at nearly the same time as when I posted this topic, and due to my issue being handled there first, and this topic may be closed..
