    Good, go ahead and run Malwarebytes again, be sure to check everything it finds and select Remove Selected , it looks like you didnt do that, that stuff needs to go

    Ken,

    I removed all the infections that Malwarebytes found and also did the scan with TDSS which found no infections .

    The PC is still slow at booting up , could what ever it is be hiding somewhere on the system ? as the first scans temporarily cured the problem .

    Lets run a free online Virus Scanner, this may take a bit of time, lets see what if anything it finds

    ESET Online Scanner
    I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

    *Note
    It is recommended to disable onboard antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans so there are no conflicts and it will speed up scan time.
    Please don't go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!
    Once the scan is finished remember to re-enable your antivirus along with your antispyware programs.



    1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
      ESET OnlineScan
    2. Click the button.
    3. For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
      1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
      2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
    4. Check
    5. Click the button.
    6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
    7. Check
    8. Make sure that the option "Remove found threats" is Unchecked
    9. Push the Start button.
    10. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin
      scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
    11. When the scan completes, push
    12. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as
      ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
    13. Push the button.
    14. Push
    Please make sure you include the following items in your next post:
    The log that was produced after running ESET Online Scanner.

    I have re-booted the PC several times now and it is back to normal. Will let you know tomorrow if it is still ok.

    I would like to thank for advising with me with removing this crap off my computer , your efforts are very much appreciated .


    Best regards

    Gary
