    you have some serious issues and 1 of them is a rootkit- extremely difficult to remove. Your best best is to reformat and reinstall your OS or be prepared to spend hours.

    to avoid such infections:

    1. quit visiting porn sites.
    2. quit using P2P software
    3. stop using instant messanging software
    4. use an antivirus
    5. use an anti-trojan such as spybot
    6. quit opening attachments from people you don't 100% trust or don't know
    7. stop looking for "warez" and other nefarious programs and/or passwords to legitimate software you SHOULD have bought.

    Did BitDefender quarantine the infections?

    Use ccleaner first
    superanti-virus second
    malware bytes third
    avg fourth

    and to clean up everything use:
    Cleaner again.

    And you should be very very good.

    Kingmeet, the URL for the cleaning process was given in Post #4. That's what we recommend. It is not advisable to come along and tell someone if they run the programs you recommend that they should be "very very good"

    Malware cleaning is a process, not one big hit and it's over. Please confine yourself to the recommendations here.
