Firstly, please forgive my lack of computer-esque knowledge. I am rather dull in this department.
I come seeking help with a strange .exe file named "restorer32a". This file has popped up in my user directory. There is a small graphic beside the file name depicting two eyes and a raised eyebrow. The file is presently 26.3KB. I cannot delete this file. When I try, I am told I need permission to continue. There is another file above it which I can delete, this file inevitabley returns though. It is called "oashdihasidihasu......(etc)". This file is presently 1 byte.
I am having problems running Defender Firewall, I get told that 'Security Centre can't turn on Windows Firewall', although when I scan the above-mentioned files with AVG 8.5 and Malwarebytes I get no errors. Is this a nasty file of sorts? How can I get rid of it?
I am using Windows Vista.
Ps. If anyone could let me know how to take a screenshot, that would be lovely (I know to press prtsc, but then what?)
