My computer has recently been bogged down by what was at first a virus, and then a series of adware/malware programs that were (and some still are) running. I've gone through the "Fixes for Specific Infections" thread, as well as the "PC Cleaning Procedures & Detection Tools" thread, but I'm still having a huge delay in booting/shutting down the system, and unless I set priorities to my programs (Firefox, Explorer etc.) they take forever to load. I've had to disable IExplorer (Windows XP SP2) because I was getting popups for spyware/adware detectors all the time, which again slowed down my system. I'm not really sure what else I can do with this, as I've gone through the big threads (listed above) and haven't had full success.
I'm getting programs like ping.exe running always (with the address of C:\WINDOWS\system32\CROSOF~1\ping.exe and an extension of "C:\WINDOWS\system32\CROSOF~1\ping.exe" -vt ndrv running) and another one called jvaw~1.exe but I can't seem to remove them, no matter what I do.
Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
