I thought I might have contracted a virus last night after some weird browser behavior. I was able to run HiJackThis and clear up some suspicious looking items - and I deleted a few temporary files that had that day's date. Unfortunately, when I attepted to run Malwarebytes' free program, it would not run. I tired uninstalling and reinstalling: it runs, but closes quickly after attempting a scan then will not reopen. I tried reinstalling by renaming the installer and the mbam.exe that runs the program to a random name, but got the same results. I'm not sure what to try next - obviously these hackers have skills beyond my meager abilities - please help! Thx!
