I worked for some company working on foreclosures. Pay was all based on pictures. I did everything independently then sent them pictures. My 1st day, they used a common website that i sent them a password it gave me to give them controll of my computer, the mouse and everything, so they could set up a webfolder that I drag and dropped my photos to. I wouldn't be supprised if the web folder gave them access to my computer and network at any time. I researched that a bit but was complex computer stuff I knew nothing about. The better companies in that field use an upload website or just email the photos in zip folders.
That company is no good, and I think they might have broken my PC through the webfolder. After a full refomat, my pc is very slow, freezes, typing makes wrong letters, have to pause between letters, etc, my train of thought is gone, this message is taking 50X longer than it should. I tried a new hardrive but no fix, It might be the ram. I made a ram test bootable cd but it didn't work and it was simple so i don't think i messed it up. Is it possible they could break my computer through a webfolder? it's about an 8 year old computer. It's much more than a keyboard prob. i heard it could be malware.

It would be best to get a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
