My system was infected with a Worm and a Trojan, both real.
The Worm used to popup the svhost nag and freeze the OS at the login screen, whereas the Trojan used to bring alot Adverts, redirect to suspicious sites and download unwanted malwares.
Kaspersky failed to remove both of these. Whereas S&D managed to remove the Worm (Not the Trojan though).
A worm program is a process that replicates itself via network without any user intervention (meaning it can infect your computer and it infect further computers while the computer is completely idle).

That's surprising. I recall Windows Defender only having a 50% detection rate. On top of that, it only removes 50% of what it detects.

Thanks for the info, but I already know about it since they were defined in the Anti-Virus definitions.
Being accurate, the worm was W32.CoolWWWSearch (S&D detected it as this) and the Trojan was Virtuamode.dll (S&D Report)
You know. It does pay to research before you actually think you know what it is. Vundo is the trojan downloader you got from browsing websites and whatnot, the rest were spyware and adware programs downloaded by Vundo:
Vundo is a deadly trojan since so many variations of it exist and there's not telling which variation you get nor the extent of it's damage.

Looks like you forgot the thread I made when I had this problem, I did do some googling. My post was not against your post.
And no, the page you linked me to did not give any solution since, it was a little different. It had a dll instead of a exe in the system 32 folder, which was impossible to delete, even through the Antivirus program. Only the registry entries were easily deleted, but they were re-entered by the virus on a simple reboot.
