Hi there, Last week I all of a sudden starting detting "virus detected" alerts from from Avast. The virus was a trojan called "Win32elf-MZG" and was found in several Spybot files. I panicked and deleted two files from Spybot search and destroy that Avast said had the trojan, one was "Teatimer" and I can't remember what the other was. I then found out that these alerts were "False Positives" and there was a bug in Avast's recent update which I believe they fixed the next day. So I went to un-install Spybot so I could re-install it again to replace the files I had deleted and it wouldn't let me. So I simply downloaded spybot again without un-installing the existing Spybot on my system. I then had two spybot icons on my desktop, one from the new install, the other from the old install. I deleted the old install icon and for some reason the new install icon then lost it's Spybot "Skin" and went to an icon with a blue arrow in the bottom left hand corner pointing to a little screenshot with icons on it. When I click on that icon, Spybot still loads and works and removes spyware on my system but I've noticed since all this happened (the virus alerts, the deleting of the files, the new Spybot install) my computer now takes longer to boot and certain websites (mostly forums) take longer to load. And for some reason my broadband connection has gone a bit erratic going from "Excellent 54mbps" to "Excellent 48mbps" to "Good 36mbps" to "Excellent 36mbps" throughout the day. Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks.
