My computer has recently been acting very strange, and I'm almost certain that it has a virus. My subscription to Mcafee recently expired, and I went a few months using only Avast! antivirus. During that time, messages started popping up when I tried to shut my computer down. In particular, the messages said that "n-program" was running and needed to be manually ended. I also received messages that said "DDE Server Windown" needed to be ended.
Furthermore, while using the internet I've had strange Mozilla tabs and browsing windows open. The go to some site called google analytics and then redirect to other sites.
I tried running malware removal (I changed the program name and everything) and found some files to delete with malware, but the problems haven't gone away. I don't know what to do! I just ran sophos anti-rootkit, and that found a lot of suspicious stuff on my computer, but it said some of the corrupt files it found were "not recommended for cleanup."
