I noticed that the computer had slowed down, taking 20 seconds to open firefox, freezing upon opening two windows explorers at once, etc. I went to virustotal.com and scanned the .exe used to launch the game and 4 of the antivirus' had found it malware so I uninstalled the game. Our computer is still slow, do you think you could help me doublecheck if anything was left behind?
I have avast free antivirus, malware bytes free version, MSE, sargui for rootkits, and ccleaner for cleaning registry, temps, etc.
Avast, mbam, and MSE havn't found anything
I have just noticed that MSE is not running automatically. Meaning, the MSE "building" symbol is not appearing in the taskbar upon startup, or even when I run manually.
Ah, in my C: drive there's a folder named with tons of letters and numbers "3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06ZZ...Z..ZZZ..ZZZ". Inside there are 80+ folders each named
"Z..ZZZ..ZZZZZZZ.ZZZ." "ZZZ.ZZ.ZZZZZZZ.....ZZ..Z" "..ZZZZ.Z.....ZZZZZ.." etc. Then inside each of those folders are 80+ files named the same thing. These were all made today? The game was installed 2-3 days ago, and I uninstalled yesterday.
Our family uses wifi and as long as this laptop is "infected" it looks like I can't do anything business related. After you help me clean this computer, would you please assist in double checking my desktop?
My computer is a windows 7 64-bit
Scratch that about reinstalling windows. My installation disk is for dell computers only, and this laptop is an HP.
However, my question still stands, if I were to reinstall windows would it erase all virus'? Or is it possible my wireless router is infected, or that the wireless adapter on my desktop is infected?
Thank you in advance!
