Possible infection/persistent infection

Recommended Posts

Recently I rebooted my computer and when it came back up, I noticed it was cycling through my various audio sources in Windows Mixer along with showing "Host Process for Windows Services" in it. After searching online and finding similar issues from other users, I ran MBAM, followed bu RogueKiller, and it appears to have gotten rid of the Host Process issue with my sound. However, I'm still having some issues that make me suspect my computer isn't completely fixed yet.

1) On bootup, the Stereo Mix for my sound card (ASUS Xonar DG) is at full volume in Windows Mixer and causes very annoying feedback until I mute/disable it. It'll do this even if I disabled it prior to a reboot.

2) Task Manager shows 11 processes for svchost.exe . I know that isn't in itself a sign of infection, but considering the issues I just experienced I'm still suspect of it.
