I first noticed a problem when my computer started telling my internet connection was not secure. I have not received this information for my laptop or other computer, only this one.
So I tried to download and run Mbam and it wouldn't let me. I went into safemode, ran rkill and downloaded it, ran it. Said it found an 'ad. something' and removed it. So I thought I was okay at that point. Nope.
Restarted in regular mode- no icons. Went back to safemode, ran unhide, then Rkill- back to regular and ran Mbam. Found nothing. Ran Avast Antivirus Full scan, found nothing. Downloaded and Ran 10bit. Found nothing.
Every time I shut it down or restart- no icons. I left it sit once for about an hour, icons finally popped up. But my mouse is now possessed. It double clicks everything, sometimes if I just run the mouse over, it clicks it for me. Opens 2-3 of everything I try to open. I am still getting 'network not secure' which takes me to a Comodo screen to buy their safe connect thing. Comodo (free) is my firewall I run.
Some time after using machine, the usb's stop reading, and it kicks my wireless adapter off. I have ran everything I can find and nothing picks up anything. But still no icons on startup- until days later, still get unsecure network error and mouse is still possessed.
I ran a process explorer v15.3 to see if my startup was just messed up since its an old computer and found two Spigot, Inc. processes. Other than the normal Microsoft processes and my security programs, Chrome and Sun Micro.
I googled the Spigot, inc. and I guess it is pretty seedy.
also ran FRST and ComboFix.
But I don't know much about computers except that I know something is wrong with this one. I need it for my business and its not working well.
Thank you so much!
