    You`re running more than one antivirus programme. This is not recommended and can cause conflicts. It will also slow your system down.

    Get rid of that Symantec/Norton crapware and keep the AVG. If you have problems uninstalling Symantec/Norton, see this thread HERE.

    Once you`ve got rid of Symantec/Norton, you`ll need to install a firewall programme. You can get either the free Zonealarm or Kerio firewalls from HERE and HERE.

    Once you`ve done that, go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and Ewido logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)
