Hi, I have a pc running Windows 8. Ended up getting a virus from 4share a few days ago, which seems to be slowing my browser (Firefox), as well as (at one point; it's gone now, as running Malbytes seemed to make it disappear, even though the program didn't find anything) causing an un-deleteable desktop icon for "Home network" to pop up.
I ran rkill, which did show a (x86)\System Recovery type entry was stopped. Then ran TFC, then both Malbytes anti-malware and Avira anti-virus, but both programs claimed they didn't find any infected items. However, every time I start my computer, I run rkill first thing, and every time, it shows one malicious process stopped, but in a different file location each time. Virus hasn't stopped me from downloading updates for Malbytes or or Avira, but won't let me download Windows Update security patches.
Any help is much appreciated, this has been driving me NUTS.
