Possible Trojan or Rootkit

Recommended Posts

       I have been noticing a slow on my computer, by the way I am not the best with malware protection and prevention. I have been using Malwarebytes antimalware tool. And I have been getting the whitesmoke pup that appears on the full scan. But if I do a custom scan on files that seem to belong to windows itself thousands of objects show up which is more than the mere 9 that normally do. I have left a custom scan on in windows safe mode, only to come back with around 300,000 infected objects found and Malwarebytes itself not responding. I have no idea how I got the infection on my computer. If it is a trojan, rootkit, or anything of that sort. I am really scared since my PC has alot of important stuff on it. And I game alot so being without a PC is a drag. When ever Malwarebytes crashes I receive no scan logs, or if I have I don't know what to do with them. Please help and if needed ask me for logs or anything that will help you out!. I am running version v2014.11.30.11 I ran a really quick scan and can give you the log for it!
