AVG is just an AntiVirus software....and it just looks for virus's. For malware, spyware and adware you need software like Malwarebytes, SuperAnti Spyware, Spybot S&D and MSE offline - it's bootable cd/dvd or flash drive. And run them in safemode doing full scans.

Personally, I would dump AVG and go with MSE....but that's just me.

Don't fool yourself. Your first post stated you had several rootkits. The odds of getting rid of every part of all of them is slim to none. I recommend a Wipe and Clean Install.

It's possible that you still have malware left on your computer. No anti-malware product will be 100% effective 100% of the time (if there was such a product we'd all be using it.) You might consider using a few more free on-demand scanners to check your system. Some of the recommended products are:


Hitman Pro



Comodo Cleaning Essentials

Windows Defender Offline

Once a computer becomes infected the only sure method to get rid of the malware is a clean install of the operating system and all other programs. Even if every additional scan comes back clean there's always the possibility the malware is so deeply embedded none of the available products can detect it. Follow the manufacturers' instructions for downloading and running the above tools. Don't forget to update each product so it has the latest signatures. And it might not hurt to run the scans in Safe Mode.

Are you running more than one real-time Anti-Virus program such as MSE and AVG at the same time?
If you are, that can cause problems.

I agree with Layback Bear and marsmimar that re-install would be best and safest.
