I've been having a problem where pornographic videos are being downloaded while no one is using the computer. It's been happening for awhile now, I brushed it off though because when it had started I had Windows Vista installed as my OS which I knew I was going to upgrade with a clean install of Windows 7 soon. Now I have had Windows 7 for two weeks now and the same problem arose again on Tuesday (Nov 17). I've become frustrated with this after trying various methods to identify the problem and remove it myself, from having quite a bit of experience with Computers and Computer Security myself, but nothing came up. I've ran scans with AVG Free, looked through file directories, looked at the internet history of all Web Browsers etc. No Dice, everything looks normal.
The material being downloaded is always in .mpg format and is downloaded to this directory: C:\Users\Alec\Documents\Downloads
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255)
BIOS: )Phoenix - Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 2942MB RAM
Main Web Browser: Google Chrome (126.96.36.199)
Secondary Web Browser: Internet Explorer (8.0.7600.16385)
I should also mention that my Stepbrother uses this computer, however, he claims that the files were not from him and from what the history shows he telling the truth. (He wouldn't know how to delete the internet history, he barley can make frozen dinners without asking me for help.)
I'm not going anywhere today and I'll be watching this thread closely, so please, ask any and all questions you may have.
