    wow the test has been going another 15 hours and seems to be stuck again on something else.

    Do you reccomend a full disk defragmentation?

    You can try that and also run TFC to get rid of garbage.

    I'm still around :)

    When you have a chance....

    1. Download TDSSKiller and save it to your desktop.
    • Extract (unzip) its contents to your desktop.
    • Open the TDSSKiller folder and doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
    • If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
    • If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
    • It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now.
    • If no reboot is require, click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
    • If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory (usually C:\ folder) in the form of TDSSKiller_xxxx_log.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.

    2. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop.
    - Right click on the folder and select Extract All...
    - Follow the prompts and extract the avenger folder to your desktop

    Double click on avenger.exe.
    Click OK in pop-up window.

    Avenger window will open.

    Click on Execute button.
    Click OK in two consecutive pop-up windows.

    Your computer will re-boot now.

    Upon re-boot, Notepad window will open.
    Select all text, copy it, and paste it into next reply.

    NOTE. If the log doesn't open on reboot, open Avenger again, and go File>Open Log File.

    Sorry I went away for a bit, been really busy with school starting up.

    alright so I ran

    TDSSKiller with 1 suspicious file found

    Log is included

    I've been having problems running the avenger, it runs but at reboot the log file does not come up and when I follow your step to retrieve it sais that there is none.
    ( I think Spybot might be conflicting with it as it takes over the startup, though I tried disabling it and it still didn't work)

    Anyways the first time I was just about to reboot after running it AVG detected a virus.

    That file found by TDSSKiller is legit (sptd.sys)

    Did you remove, what AVG found?

    But, I took another look at Process Explorer log and I saw something, what I didn't see before.
    Sometimes, you need a fresh look, I guess.
    Some SolutoService.exe process from Soluto Anti-Frustration Software is using 50 % of your CPU.

    I have no idea what it is, but please, uninstall it, restart computer and post fresh PE log.
