About two days ago my computer became EXTREMELY slow, and I suddenly got the following message about once every minute or so "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience". When I looked in my processes, I had from between 20-50 iexplore.exe listed, as well as almost as many WLLoginProxy.exe and an abnormally high amount of svchost.exe (around 15-20). I do not use explorer. I ran a scan with spybot, as well as avast, and today it is running a little better, and I do not see as many duplicating processes, but the error still occured just not as regularly. It is also still very sluggish.

Avast keeps finding the following two trojans but is unable to delete or move it, and I cannot find it with the search function or listed in the files:

EDIT: The duplicating processes have returned. I am including a screencap of my process list so you can see what I mean. I appologize for the size/lack of cropping, but I can no longer access my art programs because of the virus.

It has been 5 days since I posted my problem, and I appologize for my lack of patience but I just cannot deal with this problem anymore. I reformatted. Lost many of my files and programs and legal Windows, but it is better than what I had before. Topic closed.
