hi, this is the second time (3rd now) ive had to write this as the 1st time my pc crashed while posting it,

so here goes

just recently my pc has gone into slow down, i didnt know what it was but things like copy paste into notebook was taking ages

i noticed other things as well were all starting to run very slow, but internet explorer seemed fine,

when i eventually managed to close the slow programs verything speeded up again

i took a look at task manager and again it frooze and the task manager was running at 99%, again close this and it was back to speed

i did a spybot check and half way through avast found a virus which i deleted, and then continued with spybot,

(at this point in the post ie encountered a problem but this time i was ready for it)

all was fine for just 1/2 an hour but then it came back

ive ran a boot up scan and thats found something and i deleted that too

still the problem persists

each time i reboot and run spybot it always finds the same trojan and malware

i delete them but they come back

any ideas?

thanks mate, following your advice i downloaded and ran "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" and that also found a fair few nastys

at the moment my pc is running normal but according to that free program i am still infected with the very high risk Maddis B worm

a quick google check suggests this is not as severe as XoftSpySE claims

ill do another search and see if i can find it


many thanks for your help

Ignore XoftSpySE, it is a terrible anti-spyware program

If MalwareBytes says your PC is clean, then I wouldn't worry
