Hi, I started a topic regarding this problem here. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/508282/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do-probably-not/ .
Having checked that the computer is clean and attending to an issue with the printer software I have been directed here.
The laptop is an ACER V5-571 model number MS2361.
It is running windows 8 64bit
intel core i3-2365m CPU
The laptop is shut down each evening and when I come to it in the morning it is awake. If it was left unplugged (for safety) then the battery will be flat.
If it is left plugged in then it will be warm when I come to it and I would sooner not leave it plugged in overnight.
I have looked at things that might update in the early hours and can find nothing that is set to run at that time.
The router stats show that the machine switches on at approx 3 - 4 am..
Thanks in advance.... Rob
