Greetings to all. Was having problems with my PC when accidently found BC on the net. Had taken it in to be serviced only after I had tried everything I could think of. Was told they found a rootkit linked to a key logger. My computer ran good for about a week and then the problem reemerged (slow running, trouble with program execution, etc.)Ran antivirus - Kaspersky & Malwarebytes but came back clean every time. Learned of Malwarebyte's Anti-Rootkit beta version and downloaded it's zip from BC which I then opened and executed. Within two minutes it found malware which I deleted at the end of the scan and haven't had any trouble since. Thanks to BC, and the information they give is No. 1. in my book. I like to spend time on the computer when I'm not prospecting or mining gold here in Southern Nevada. Like talking to fellow prospectors in search of the mother lode. Peace and good will to everyone out there and if your having the same problem with your PC maybe you should try Mb's anti-rootkit scan if all else fails.
