Not sure how to check that WS2IFSl.sys thing. Don't seen it on tastk manager.

Sorry scan took so long but it was a long scan and computer accidentally got bumped half way thru first one then it told me to restart after second scan. As such I think the saved doesn't have all the viruses on it. Also to note I can't seem to even get to the location where any of these files are. Basically there is no appdata folder under my user folder...

Anyways sysinfo stuff

I don't think I've gotten another alert since the last scan finished. No more svchost.exe*32s running right now even though I have all the same programs I normally have up and lag as been normalish. Looks like last one did it.

Yeah the first scan or 2 had alot of stuff in avg. I want to say a total of 60-70 threats. Which was almost all of them.

Thanks for all the help. And that last scanner is a beast. Found so much the others didn't. Too bad it takes forever

Subject to no further problems   :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems 

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points:

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following
    Quote
    :Commands
    [resethosts]
    [emptytemp]
    [Reboot]
  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
Remove ComboFix

  • Hold down the Windows key + R on your keyboard. This will display the Run dialogue box
  • In the Run box, type in ComboFix /Uninstall (Notice the space between the "x" and "/") then click OK



  • Follow the prompts on the screen
  • A message should appear confirming that ComboFix was uninstalled
Run OTL and hit the cleanup button.  It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself. 

We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application.

 Upgrading Java:
  • Go to this site  and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version
SPRING CLEAN

To manually create a new Restore Point
 
  • Go to Control Panel and select System
  • Select System
  • On the left select System Protection and accept the warning if you get one
  • Select System Protection Tab
  • Select Create at the bottom
  • Type in a name i.e. Clean
  • Select Create
Now we can purge the infected ones
  • GoStart > All programs > Accessories > system tools
  • Right click Disc cleanup and select run as administrator
  • Select Your main drive and accept the warning if you get one
  • For a few moments the system will make some calculations
  • Select the More Options tab
  • In the System Restore and Shadow Backups select Clean up
  • Select Delete on the pop up
  • Select OK
  • Select Delete
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

Malwarebytes.  Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Download and install FileHippo update checker and run it monthly it will show you which programmes on your system need updating and give a download link

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated. To keep your operating system up to date visit
To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide  How did I get infected in the first place ?

Keep safe  :wave:

Before I get started with all that I have some questions.

Why remove all the tools? A couple of them seem kinda useful.

Why are we making sure hidden files stay hidden? On that note I actually don't see a tools menu to click. Though I can get to something that ends up going to an option to do that under organize.

And yeah I was keeping my avg running and updated but apparently it seems it itself was infected so I switched to avast. That should work fine right?

The 'tools' OTL, combofix are constantly updated, so before using them (under supervision) if problems occur you want the latest version.

In My Computer window there is a Menu along the top, one of the options is Tools, that's the one, clicking that gives the other options, Folder Options, etc. (see image, whilst this is on my XP system it should be similar). Keeping those system files/folders hidden avoids accidental deletion, etc.

You have to remove AVG you can't keep two resident antivirus applications installed (even if you disable one) as the low level drivers can conflict, which could leave you more vulnerable.

What David said  ;D

Malware tools are updated very regularly as they are targeted by malware, so we need to keep one step ahead
