Really Nasty Malware

Hope someone can help me with this malware or spyware which i seemed to have picked up on my laptop.
I am running windows 7 64bit and something weird is happening sometimes i am unable to launch 32bit applications including my AVG and Malwarebytes programs and sometimes they work, i have been prompted a few times and virusscanner has cleaned but i'm not convinced everything has gone and need some advanced techniques for removal.

Hope someone can help me

Welcome to TSF :)

Download Combofix from this webpage: A guide and tutorial on using ComboFix

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**


1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.


Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" .
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Your combofix log is clean.
Can you be more descriptive with the problems with mbam and avg. Thanks
To be honest, My distaste for AVG is profound. Please uninstall it and install MIcrosoft SEcurity Essentials. Let me know if you still have any problems. Make sure you install the 64bit version of MSE.
NOt sure why. I have win7 64bit and it launches find on system32 and systemWOW64
