    Hi Killer198509, :wave:

    I need you to follow all the steps HERE and then post back with the three requested logs as attachments
    • AVG antispyware
    • ComboFix
    • Hijackthis (step 15)

    Dont forget to make sure that AVG is set to quarantine the results, that HJT is the last step and to let us know the results of the antirootkit scan.

    Good luck and welcome to techspot.

    Thank you :)
    I was also wondering if Avast Antivirus would run better?

    Why did you get Xoftspy? It was formerly on spyware warriors rogue products list until a couple of years ago.

    NOD32 is a good paid for antivirus, Avast! is a good free one, your choice really.
