Computer slowing down - persistent rootkit

September 21, 2009 at 19:49:22
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.674 GHz / 3062 MB
I just got a new motherboard, quad core
processor and 4 gigs of ram; a major upgrade
to my computer. However, it is still running
slowly (same HARD DRIVE, no reformat)
I want to avoid reformatting for another month
until I get Windows 7, but virus scans are
coming up clean.

I have a rootkit every time I scan my computer,
some file in windows\system32 with random
letters and numbers that changes each time.

In addition, MalwareBytes is CONSTANTLY telling me
that it is blocking me against malicious IP
attacks from many different IPs - I have a
firewall and a router with no ports
forwarded/DMZ or anything crazy.

Help! Thanks

download unhackme and run all the scans. It is free for 30 days and will remove all your infections.

You can use the beginners guide which is on the left of the download page. Google any questionable entries to see if they should be removed.
