I recently encountered a few problems. I cannot empty my recycle bin. I can't rename files or folders in Word. I've tried to rename my favorites in my favorites bar as well, in IE8, and cannot. I can't create any New Folders at all. I can't drag files.
I tried to run ID Patrol (which I downloaded w/no prob.), even as admin, and it just disappears after it acts like it's going to run.
My computer has been running loudly (that's all I can think of how to describe it like a loud fan running) and I downloaded Process Explorer, and found Mozilla 4.0 running, which I didn't understand because I do not use it, I only use IE8. So I killed the process and instantly the computer hushed and has been quiet since, the first time in a very long time.
This may explain why auditmypc.com reported my browser as Firefox?
I ran a RootRepeal scan which mostly returned "Locked to the Windows API" or "Invisible to the API".
I ran MalwareBytes, it found nothing. Neither does Avast or Comodo.
I have winPatrol running, and it shows an instance of appmgmts running under services with a startup type of Oanual. This is not a typo. It sure doesn't seem right to me.
I am concerned as well because I did some on-line banking and the payments didn't reach their destination (but they weren't deducted from my account either) so I don't know what happened to the transactions.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! I am specifically concerned about password stealer/keyloggers in addition to any other potential malware causing these issues.
