Cannot get rid of 'Antivirus Live' Virus

By Louiseshearman8

  1. I cannot seem to get rid of the virus entitled 'Antivirus Live', it is one of those viruses(or malaware i'm not sure) that poses as a antivirus program and just bogs down the computer. I've tried the steps instructed in this thread:
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
    Nothing pops up anymore and i've run Superantispyware, Avira and Malawarebytes anti malaware many times and they've stopped picking up viruses. However I know there is still a virus somewhere because everytime i go into firefox,chrome or ie and try to watch a Divx movie the browser has to shut down (and displays a message asking to send a report or not) My computer is also slightly slower.
    I've reinstalled all the browsers, and java. To no Avail. I don't know what to do next. I can't do system restore either, every time i try it just says that I can't restore to that point. HELP!!

    If you want malware WE need to see the logs from the three program!
