It started out with a majorly slow internet connection, so I thought, I'll see what my computer is connecting to, downloaded CurrPorts to see what's going on, turns out explorer.exe is connecting hundreds of times to what appears to be an advertising website. I guess that's the cause of that.
I try and figure out what it is, and I remember the other day my USB seems to have some problems, it wouldn't open whenever I tried to see the contents but rather looked as if it was executing instead of opening like it should.
Eventually I do get it to open, by killing explorer.exe then reopening it, there's a program called open.exe on the usb along with an autorun.inf I never put there, I format the usb, then unplug and replug it back it, those two things come back again, so now it appears that whatever I had on the usb has gone onto the computers I've plugged the usbs into... So that'd be 2 infected, the desktop and my laptop.
Now I seem to have some virus that Malwarebytes doesn't pick up, and a super slow internet connection... On top of that, FireFox randomly connects to a random advertising site...
I'm also extremely worried that whatever is connecting to this weird site is sending all manner of personal information...
So guys, I'm in dire need of help, please!
Thanks for any help you can provide.
