Problem with virus.

Postby gwilson239 » Sun Mar 08, 2009 12:55 pm

I currently have a virus that causes me to have a svchost.exe error whenever i start up, and it prohibits any of my antispyware programs from updating the definition list. In addition, it makes my internet explorer very slow, and it looks like one of the older versions from like 98. Also, on occasion, when I search things in google it redirects me to random sites. Any help with just updating my anti-spyware software would be wonderful.

Download and install the latest version of AVG from then run a full system scan.

Also if you can download and install MalwareBytes as a further scan it should clean up the system nicely for you.
