Nasty little bugs

I took a visit to the "Microsoft" site and pulled a few downloads of really basic stuff like media player 11 and a few updates. I then went to Sony VAIO's site and downloaded gigga pocket's updates. I didn't download anything else. My pc got a little buggy and I noticed a few application crashes. I updated Malewarebytes and ran a scan. 18 bugs at completion. Mostly backdoor bots but also one hijack and a few data grabbing nastys. Just a heads up because other than that I have no clue where they came from. I've been without a net connection for a while so it's not like I'd been surfing around grabbing random junk. It totally shut down my firewall and although I repeatedly turned it on, it would warn me that it was disabled not even ten min later. I'd go check and it was in fact turned off by something other than myself. I've managed to remove a bunch and quarantine the rest.

If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
