I have become one of the many with a PC infected by 2 fake security scams (Cyber Protection Center and Cyber Security). I purchased Spyware Doctor recently, thinking that this would get rid of it, since the free scan did identify them, or so I thought, but it has failed. Can someone possibly advise me on how to get rid of them please? My computer has slowed down a lot, and the constant pop-up messages are really annoying.

I have a HJT log file, below.

Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to TSG :)

Before i get started, i need you to remove all your Anti-Virus program except one. You have numerous programs installed. Running muliple AV programs will cause system slowdown and crashes. Thanks

Hi sjpritch25,

many thanks for your offer of assistance. A couple of days after posting, the Cyber Security problems disappeared, I can only assume that it was removed by SPYWARE Doctor.

However, my computer continues to run very, very slowly. Could you possibly help me to clean it up please?

You said I needed to remove all but one of my antivirus programs. I didn't know I was running more than one. Can you advise me further please?

Many thanks
