Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is very good.

Go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then Signature: and put information about your system if you like just like my sigature.

Go to Secunia Online Software Inspector then run it to see what applications are vulnerable on your system:

I think that Yokenny and others would like as much information as possible to make a better assessment regarding the persons problem.

you could also give superantispyware a shot for sometimes it detected thinks malwarebytes doesn't and wise versa.

Not all problem is related to infection....... ???

Maybe somone is asking     "why is my computer so slow"    or    "why does my boot scan not work"
then some system info can give you the answer

could be a false positive in spyware doctor. I would replace spyware doctor and spy boot s&d with Superantispyware, but thats me.....

this is also a good tool to use,    Dr.Web CureIt on-demand virus scanner The program does not require an installation and can be run from a USB drive. This is an on-demand scanner only, it can detect and remove virus infections but does not provide any real-time protection. Dr.Web CureIt is based on the ICSA certified Dr. Web scanning engine and should provide reliable detection. Free of charge for non-commercial use only. http://www.snapfiles.com/get/cureit.html
