  1. Hello, I've been struggling with some malware on my windows 7 home premium 64 bit home PC. About two weeks ago, I noticed something was wrong when the PC got really laggy and the cpu was pegged and RAM was full. After struggling into task manager, I found some sketchy processes, long story short some nasty .exe files hanging out in AppData that I used safe mode with command prompt to delete (havac.exe among them, if that rings a bell). I have all my files backed up, and have been going at this thing with malwarebytes and microsoft security essentials, as I don't know what else to do. Everything shows up clean now, but I'll get multiple explorer.exe processes running and using all my resources. Malwarebytes also informs me that explorer.exe is trying to access malicious web addresses. It changes almost every time, and I haven't written any of the addresses down. Bottom line, there's stuff still here making it hard for me to use my PC, and I don't know how else to attack it. I've read some about this kind of issue but descriptions and solutions vary so I figured I'd start fresh. I've also read about the security issues and vulnerability associated with this kind of thing, so I want to get this resolved asap. Thank-you in advance for all your help.
