I suspect my new Dell N5110 laptop's network has been Hijacked? Files seem to change names on their own and appear out of nowhere. Scipting seems to be involved. Need help or I'm thinking it might possibly better to just somehow clean install? with this prefab setup from Best Buy not even sure if a clean install is possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. i've also followed the MajorGeeek's sites' instructions on malware removal and am posting here as well for an even more thorough if not over-the-top set of cans and logs for your staff to decipher and utilize in assisting me. (extra scan logs: hijackthis.log, mbamlog.txt file, and also my Super Anti-Spyware lof file). Thanks in advance. -AW80

*my GMER.exe program will only allow me to check -services, registry, files, C:\, and ads boxes only for some reason.

Good evening. :)

I'm thinking it might possibly better to just somehow clean install?

If there is a possibility that your PC has been compromised to the extent that you think, i'd be reformatting as a priority. The potential harm that could be done with this level of access makes it the only sensible option i'm afraid.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
