Ok, so this whole thing started with Microsoft Security Essentials. But after some time he wouldn't update anything and scans were incomplete. So I uninstalled it and installed Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. When I installed it he warned me that i have another Anti-spyware runing. I pressed to see a problem and it MSE.I scanned the computer and i found rootkit virus but I can't seem to remove it and i have a feeling that none of my anti-spyware works properly. And my computer got really slow. I searched everywhere but i couldn't find anything from MSE. And after that I started to have a lot of problems. Half of my processes went dead. I managed to fix them all but i can't seem to get my windows defender runing. And since then the computer is slow as [bleep], with low cpu and the hdd led is always on, like something is running in the background and it's always like that.I hope you'll have some answers for me.

Hi there I need to take a look first

Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /rs
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /64 /rs
    C:\Windows\assembly\tmp\U\*.* /s
  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs


Download aswMBR.exe ( 1.8mb ) to your desktop.
Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it Click the "Scan" button to start scan

On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply
