I have seen this before but am wondering what could be recommended as of how to take of this issue before I start jumping to the computer later this afternoon.
I have a Dell Vostro 1000 Laptop that has Avast Server Managed Anti-Virus. 1.2 GHz 512MB RAM.
One: I am receiving is that the AV software is preventing any type of network access due to a Malicious Script that is running. It comes up with several different messages stat 'Avast! has detected a Malicious script: www.openportsvrc.com/remote ... and several other of that type.
Two: Computer is rather slow upon starting and is pulling 600MB on ram when it only has 488MB available to use.
The browser currently in use on this computer is IE6 and Win XP Pro SP2. Was going to run updates until I found this issue on the computer.
I have done very little to the computer since last night.
MalwareBytes was run, found nothing.
Avast! AntiVirus Boot Scan ran, Found 35 infections Quarantined and Removed.
C-Cleaner was run, Cleared Temp files and 300 bad Registry Files.
Start Up, Cleaned and only has required programs.
Granted now the computer is no longer slow in start up after the small cleaning but the primary issue is still present.
Just more of a suggestive since when I get back to it I might run a few more programs i have and see what else I find. Any Suggestions are acceptable and reformatting the computer is the last option I would even think of though it may be easier.
