Hello, recently I have noticed that my PC has been slower, so I investigated. It turns out that I have a ton of Trojans, and malicious things lurking on my pc; namely Oxy and Pilefile according to my searches. I have tried Malwarebytes, adware removal, and mcafee scans and stinger. None of them worked. I really need to fix this because I am afraid of credit theft and my pc completely dying.
If you've not had success using all those tools, check in the last link in my signature below for some hints.
It might be a good idea to post a Hijackthis log on one of the recommended specialist forums listed near the end of the document.
It's unfortunate to be in that situation but you have to realise that no anitvirus is 100% guaranteed. It depends a lot on you. So be careful what you download and where you download from and always keep all aspects of your operating system totally up to date, including any parts you may not use, for examply Internet Explorer, even if you use another browser.

I especially recommend BleepingComputer as they really are experts but be patient as they are very busy.
A PC my son uses has the same issue as was called out in the beginning of this thread. Oxy is the program name and there are 2 other program files associated with it - PileFile downloader and PileFile reminder. All three are listed as published by Lady's Wood 2013 Limited. None of them will uninstall when I try to do so under Programs and Features. I get an error message stating I do not have sufficient permission to uninstall them and to contact my system administrator even though I am logged into the machine wtih the admin PW. The machine is running McAfee Security Center, is current on updates, scan yields no results for Oxy, or Pile File. I have found some vauge referrences to these file names as malware, viruses, or possibly trojans when doing a basic web search but nothing returns that also doesnt appear sketchy... Any advice?
