1. Receieved this computer running VERY sluggish
2. Started in Safemode
3. Found that the regedit microsft\currentversion\run was FILLED with about 1800 entried of random letter/number combinations.
4. There was a scheduled task that was created that ran every hour, not quite sure what it did.
4.5. Deleted all those entries and installed AVG
4.75. MS Antivirus 2009 was also installed but Malware Malbytes took it out.
5. AVG is now barking about winlogon\PEpatch.AO and win32/PEPatch.AO but the files are in the "white-list" so I can prevent it from showing up.
6. All of my system restores were infected.
7. How should I proceed?
8. Hijackths is below
