Specs: Windows Vista

Been having a few problems with my pc lately. Something is messing with my graphics, tried the usual upgrading of the driver etc with no luck. This morning i downloaded a trojan scanner called Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 and it found a few trojans/woms which i will list below. Doing a search on one of these brought me to this site, this thread actually:

Can anyone advise me how to proceed in removing them safely, I don't want to follow those instructions in the other thread just to be safe incase i cause more harm than good!

I currently have avg and ad-aware installed which have found none of these infections so far which is really no surprise! here they are below.


Any help advice would be appreciated.

"Can anyone advise me how to proceed in removing them safely"

Just use Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0.

Then run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Error codes
Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, Frequently Asked Questions.
VIPRE Rescue Program
Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
How to see hidden files in Windows
Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.
Download & install.

Thanks for the reply John.

My screen is randomly flickering and switching itself off which results in me having to force it to shutdown and restart my pc. Hopefully it will stop long enough for me to finish running a proper scan.

I'll let you know how it goes.
