File Name.exe and svchost.exe virus?

Hello.

My friend borrowed my laptop earlier this morning and he returned it to me after 3 hours. Upon checking my laptop status, I saw to new processes: File name.exe and svchost.exe. I end it's processes and check the msconfig. I saw two new checked start-up entry: svchost.exe and Windows Application. On command tab, I tried tracing the windows application start-up entry. It is located on Appdata\Roaming\File Name.exe. But when I search it, File Name.exe doesn't seem to exist. Also, I tried searching the location of svchost.exe (Appdata\Local\Temp\svchost.exe). But it doesn't exist too. I tried un-checking the two unknown start-up entry. But whenever I click "apply" button, the two entry will automatically be checked. Also, I did run my antivirus (ESET Smart Security 7). It found 4 virus on Operating Memory. The virus was named as "chrome.exe(4044)" located in operating memory and was recognized as Win32/Spatet.T trojan. My AV says that it has been cleaned. But whenever I scan it again, the chrome.exe(4044) is still there.

Thanks!

Done. Thank you very much! I found plenty of hidden virus on my AppData Temp folder. The viruses has been deleted by my AV with the use of the tool you gave. Thank you very much.

Great, glad I could help! But I advice you to scan with other products as well, for a "second opinion".
