After becoming infected with Antivirus Soft, I removed it without trouble using malwarebytes. Now buttons on different programs are missing the last letter.


At first, I thought it was just a problem with malwarebytes.

Then, since I got Antivirus Soft because of an outdated version of Adobe Reader, I downloaded and installed the newest version. This is after I had removed Antivirus Soft.

Surprisingly, the cancel button was missing a letter too.

Those are the only two programs so far I've noticed having the problem, but it's only been happening for about 5 minutes, so I assume there are other programs having the problem as well. Also, as you can see in the pictures, it doesn't affect all the buttons.

What worries me is it happened to a program I downloaded after I removed Antivirus Soft. Did malwarebytes miss one of the files?

Try reverting back to Normal GUI without any themes and see if the issue still remains. If you what you said was true you would see that the Next on the Adobe installer would be missing the T or the >

It's not the theme, I've had this theme for years without a problem.

Er... Actually, switching back to the normal GUI did fix it. But it wasn't like this before, so I think the virus did something to the theme I'm using.

You need to redownload the Theme then and install it.

That didn't fix it, so either it's a problem with a file that didn't get replaced when I reinstalled the theme, or it's a problem with the theme and I've just never noticed it before.

It doesn't really matter, though. As long as it's not a remnant of the virus, I really don't care very much.
