I have Using AVG free Anti virus for a long time and never got infected before but recently it picked up a malware infection (Listed as Trojan Horse Generic27.ks in the resident shield detection list)
So after researching online I downloaded MicroSoft Safety Scanner which apparently removed two trojans (Win32/Acbot.A and Win32/Imsproad.A) and advised scan was successful.
Rescanning with AVG no threats were detected.
However PC has been operating slowly (especially internet speed) and it seems as if something is running in background.
So looking online I found geekstogo.com malware removal guide.
Problem is I now cannot seem to run ANY .exe files including the OTL.exe as part of the removal guide steps. I suspect this problem is as a result of malware infections.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
