   I was using my computer normally, when I noticed it was acting really slowly. I put up for it for about half an hour until I finally looked at the processes. I know I most likely have a worm or something because it shows:

   avguix.exe *32 (That's by my non-working anti-virus)

   x6 conhost.exe


   x2 dllhost.exe


   x2 explorer.exe


   x3 msiexec.exe




   x4 taskhost.exe



   Please note that I just started the computer up, and it took about 10 seconds for all of the processes to fill up the Windows Task Manager window. They aren't even popping up on the screen, like notepad.exe. I don't know what to do :( I just want to play my emulators in peace...

Those processes can pop up from legitimate usage too but just to be sure, please, post the logs from the sticky thread.
