Rogue Killer is a security tool that can be used to terminate and remove malicious processes and programs from your computer...

Your Hosts file is okay, I wanted to see if anything had been added either by you Jess or malware. Next time though save any text files as .txt.
Malware can hide much easier in a Word, Excel file.

You can run rogue killer, but malwarebytes has its types here, and superantispyware under its 'System Tools" section can be sufficient enough to do the job.
Try running each of those to see what they find and remove, and what they can't remove. Then you can advance to something more dedicated for removal.

If you want to try an online antimalware scanner, keep in mind herdprotect will only try to find malware it will not remove it if it does find it, see: http://herdProtect: Second-opinion anti-malware scanner with 68 scan engines | www.thewindowsclub.com

Here is a list of online scanners, some only look, some look and remove, pick the ones that do both: Free Antimalware Tools | Malware Help. Org, and don't just run one, run the first four, skip Tenebril, then run the next three. Report back any malware that couldn't be removed, upload the logs.


When's the last time you've defraged your machine Jess, have it on auto?

I don't know how much longer I'll be able to help. I have a family emergency, and I'll probably be gone for all next week.

Maxie, if you and Jess get stuck, ask for help at the "More Help Requested Thread"

No. I defrag once a month. I think my computer is okay. Working on my neighbor's computer today. Anak or Steve, I will be praying for your mother. I read your post in the More Help Requested area.

Maxie if I might make a suggestion I would be trying this as it doesn't involve Windows and scans (very quickly) the machine on it's own.

Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 it needs a bootable disk to be made Jesse but it is very easy.

Anyway just two cents worth as I haven't read the entire thread yet to see what malware stuff has been run.

Browsers Vey Slow
Last week I had a catastrophic failure. I donít need to get into details but bottom line is that Windows 7 (x64) had to be completely installed from scratch.

Windows Explorer and now Browsers slow / timing out
These two issues may or may not be related, but both seem to have started recently: Windows Explorer (not Internet explorer) just sits there for ages (several minutes) before actually displaying the contents of my computer. The structure on the left is all there but the right side where all...

Suddenly very slow browsing, all browsers
Since two days ago all my browsers function very slow. A new tab can take 15 seconds to open, typing in addressbar has very long delay (I type an address and hit Enter, it takes up to 20 seconds for first letter to appear, then other letters appear one in every 0.5 to 1 second). Typing this post...

Slow Browsers Startup
Hi, Recently I have noticed that IE9 and Firefox 5 take a really long time to load up on startup, whereas Opera loads up instantly on startup. I have tried disabling all add-ons for both these browsers, as well as disabling all startup entries to see if these have an effect. I have also ran...
