I contracted a Poweliks infestation on my PC and my antivirus appears helpless in combating it (AVG) I get notices every 60 seconds or so as the antivirus tries to swat it down but AVG is cleatly losing the battle. Any suggestions?

i still thing AVG is good if you customize it right, but i know a lot of folks are going to MSE
 
+1 for MalwareBytes. I DL the free version and run it from time to time just to be safe.
 
I installed malwarebytes on my computer 3 years ago and have not had a problem since then. It is only like $15 most of the time for the full version and lifetime updates.

I think you get the latest updates with the free version. I thought the pay version gives you other tools for disk cleanup and such. I could be wrong though.
 
You are probably right. In fact I probably originally used the free version to clean up my PC the last time it got infected with something and then bought the full version afterward for the extras.
