I'm afraid I picked up a Trojan a couple of days ago (AVG warning, computer started running very very slow).

I'm running Win7 32 bit.

Ran AVG free and Malwareytes, 8 threats found and succesfully deleted.

After rebooting the PC it was up to speed again, however AVG shows an error, telling me real time protection is switched off (computer not protected).

Tried rebooting, reinstalling AVG, running a removal tool and installing different AV programs (both Avast and Avira), both show the same problems, real time protection will not start. Also tried this after uninstalling all other anti spyware and virus related programs (Spybot S&D, CCleaner, Malware Bytes), still no go.Ran 

 

Ran Farbar, results are enclosed.

 

I hope someone can help me out..
