Hi guys, just found this website after my pc suddenly went really slow yesterday. I installed spybot search and destroy, I ran a scan and it said 790,000 items found. It got to the end of the scan and said no problems found. I noticed the name of one of the items scanned, was virtumonde. I tried to do a full scan with mcafee, but it stopped after 3 hours at 50%, then I tried to scan with adaware, that I have found to be successful in the past, the program wouldn't load.

I have disconnected the network adapter and won't boot up until I get a response, currently using my iPod to post this.

I'd really apprieciate help with cleaning my pc and advice on any programs to prevent this happening in the future.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: ran superantispyware portable at the same time as running mbam, SAS found 272 problems, and mbam found 0.
