    I recently had trouble with my computer so ran malwarebytes which Identified 4 viruses and svchost files. that thought I had removed, however, I'm not convinced all viruses are gone from my computer. In addition, in the last week (the same time I discovered infection in my computer) my computer is noticeably slower and the removal of the 4 viruse has not improved the speed AT ALL and several svchost files remain.

    I need a good computer cleansing!! Your help is greatly appreciated!! Bless you guys for being such and awesome resource.
