Windows 7: I think I have an undetected virus.

oh, and I was running AVG Free and that was it in order to test it. So far malwarebytes has found nothing.

Hitman Pro might find something. Try it with and without Force Breach mode. If it finds anything, you can activate a 30 day trial and it will remove it for you.

How does Hitman Pro compare to Emsisoft Anti-Malware? I am running the trial and noticed that when monitoring system usage compared to Avast & Comodo, it is more taxing on my system.

That sounds like a worm to me but just saying.

It does (most of it anyway). You can get to it from the task manager, Performance tab, [Edit]"Resource Monitor"[/edit].

It's actually the same code as Process Explorer but with a Windows 7 UI on it. Though there are some of the more tweaky drill-downs missing, there is still a ton of info about everything your machine is doing under there

Are you running Emsisoft real-time? Hitman Pro is purely on-demand, for now. It only scans for active threats but it is very good at it, in my opinion. (Long read. Edit: Not as long as I originally thought.) You can read exactly how it works in the Command-Line Reference: http://www.surfright.nl/en/downloads/business

This was a program initially made by System Internals. MS bought the software? As it is very in-depth, these programs are not for general users. They allow you to kill just about any program (some AV wont stop through this)

I use this on my systems as well as Autoruns: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb963902.aspx

Look through all thier programs there is a lot of great stuff in the suite Sysinternals Suite


Edit: Correction: ProcExplorer is a good interface, it does the same as Windows Taskmanager. (I feel it is easier to find info through ProcExplorer)

Guess You're right corrine. I shouldn't posted that in the first place. It's too dangerous for personal use without expert to guide... Thanks for correcting me
