When reading over my post I realized I had forgotten to mention a fact. When I attempt to run a full scan with malwarebyte, it freezes at a certain point. I can't complete the full scan due to this...
Recently, I had a bunch of problems with my computer. I had gotten my desktop hijacked, I got infected with MyWebSearch, and a Trojan, which was the Trojan Vundo.
After doing some research, I used MalwareBytes, which had told me what was wrong and (supposedly) sucessfully removed them. Now, everything worked fine for a while, but then I saw a few of the same things happening again. At one point, my brower continously opened tabs for a site, which ended up making me freeze. I'm finding various files on my computer, and I have no idea even how they got there.
Now, my computer isn't new. I'm not sure when it was made, but I know that over a long amount of time, due to updates, you will lose diskspace, but there has actually been an incident, when I lost 7% of disk space, in less then a week. Now I know that I hadn't updated, or put anything on my computer at the time. Now, after attempting to fix things for a long time, I only have 18% of free disk space left.
In an another attempt to fix my computer, I joined this site. I followed the instructions on the malware removal page. I downloaded the dds and had it scan. Then I continued to to the Rootrepeal. That's when I began to encounter problems. As soon as I run it, I get a little message that says "Error - Invalid PE image found!" It still scanned when I started it though. Later however, as it scanned, I noticed that it froze. Then, after trying to see if it would work again, it crashed repeatedly. I attempted to delete it and re-download it, but I ended up with the same results.
Currently, my computer is still usable, but it's only a matter of time before some else happens. Can someone please advise me on what I should do?
