A Malaware Program, I recently deleted by means of 2spyware.com, has installed a large number of viruses on my computer reducing speed, advertising antivirus programs, hijacking my internet explorer, and changing my settings. I've managed to delete everything it's spawned so far but now I have a virus that's been opening new instances of iexplore.exe that run in the background and do not show up on screen, these instances go to a web page of ads that play audio such as: "Imagine a new computer that isn't slow, only it's not a new computer it's Google Chrome" and "Devry university, Do what you've always wanted" and even ads so simple as "Congratulations! you've won!".
These ads will stop in there tracks if i end both the iexplore proceses through taskmanager or mute Internet Explorer through windows vista's mixer function. I have not been able to figure out which process is launching these but i also get constant "Internet explorer has stopped working" and "google installer has stopped working". This virus also has installed Google Chrome Without me knowing, After uninstalling it hasn't appeared again but the "Google installer has stopped working" continues to appear. Please share any knowelage you can provide about this issue. I have done extensive searches on this and came up with nothing. i tried doing scans with both avast! virus scanner and Malawarebytes which says "malaware bytes has stopped working when i attempt to run it." avast "found viruses" but i don't think there what im having trouble with. If you have the same issue or have a solution please share it.
