Hi I have asus k40in laptop. I've only had it a few months but would like to keep it alive as long as possible.
I installed bitdefender right from the get-go but it only ever picks up a couple tracking cookies.
So i downloaded hijackthis but dont understand all the mumbo jumbo.
I also downloaded malwarebytes anti malware and did a quick scan, sure enough found a trojan.....
I've included both logs in my post. Let me know if you see anything suspicious

thanks in advance
