    Hello and welcome to TechSpot.

    Run HijackThis and do a system scan. Place a check in the box next to the following entries (if there):

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinAVX] C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinAvX.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WinAVX] C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinAvX.exe

    Then close all open programs except HijackThis and your web browser, and click the Fix Checked button. Wait until it's done fixing, and then close HijackThis.

    Then go into your Task Manager, by pressing and holding in the ctrl, alt, and delete keys, then releasing them simultaneously. Go to the Processes tab. Click on the following process (if there) and then click the End Process button:


    When it asks you if you want to end the process, click Yes.

    Then go and read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, ComboFix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above. Also post here the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards :)
