I tried searching for mdmp but found little information on that file.
I've run a complete system scan with Avast and MalwareBytes and neither finds any infected files.
This evening, I briefly opened Firefox and after closing it, noted that it was still running on my system, using 110,000 K, which is far more than is normal.
Could I have a backdoor trojan or other malware?
Some things I forgot (but added after posting the above:
Oopss...forgot to mention I did try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Another thing I noticed is regarding my external hard drive. I notice that when I'm using Firefox and I want to close it down (I store all my photography on it, and I'm talking nearly a TB of photos), using the "Safely Remove Hardware" feature, often it says I can't because the system is still using it. I don't recall if this occurance is everytime I use FFox or not. I can't figure out what part of my computer is doing so (all programs are closed) and once I while it was shutting down right near the end I pulled the power and got an error message something about my system was writing something and the data would be lost. I can't figure out what that's about. I have about 56 GB of stuff on my internal HD, mostly photo related, and my computer reports that 108 GB of my HD is filled. I have some hoggy programs like MS Office and Adobe CS Suite, but that still seems excessive, no?
When I use Chrome, I can safely remove my HD any time.
