I am waiting for a response from one of the pros regarding my redirect problem. However, I now have an update from microsoft ready to install and don't know if I should let it update or not, as I was told to not install anything new etc... until I hear from someone. I don't know how long it is going to be, and don't know what to do. Any help?
P.S. - regarding my problem, I meant to mention it when I orginally asked for help, and I didn't do anything to it, but Malwarebytes had found a "Malware.trace" that was in my registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USERS-SOFTWARE-WINSERVERS. There is the (default) item, plus ones called "run" with value of 0x00000000 (0), and "TimeGetWork" with a value of 0x0005c419 (377881). Both are of type "REG_DWORD". Not shockingly, it exists in HKEY_USERS as well, but Malwarebytes had only listed it once. Also of note and present in both HKEY sections, and perhaps of more importance, I noticed the folder right below it, which hasn't been picked up by any scanner, is a folder named "wpyyaxbft". Inside it is an item named "id", type REG_SZ, value 78.38 ...and a whole bunch of items of seemingly random letters such as "dkkekrkska". They are all REG_DWORD and have values of 1. I am quite certain these items are all a problem, but haven't done anything to them, again because I was instructed to not delete or install anything. I have seen such names of random/scrambled letters in the startup in msconfig before when having problems, and fighting this one. Perhaps it will help whichever advisor assists me.
Is it okay to let windows update? Thanks in advance again.
