So my laptop seemed a little more sluggish and slow to start up recently. I decided to run SuperAntiSpyware and Mbam to see if there was any crap on it. 

 

SAS found some cookies and I deleted them

 

Mbam found minerd in my user folder.

 

I asked googled and also asked some friends about this before I did anything.

 

I saw an exe with a weird name in my task manager. Something like tn_23_RN_lled dkcap something or other. I ended the process.

 

I checked it with Norton and it says it's fine. Then I used Norton Rootkit and Spyware and scanner and restarted and sure enough this popped up. Also something about users nt 32bit. I deleted the files in the scan. 

 

minerd is still in my users folder though.

 

Using Trend Micro's Housecall now also and then MBAM again on recommendation.

 

What is this exactly and what does it do? How did I get it and please help me fully remove it from my laptop. Could any of my passwords or Internet banking be compromised already?

 

Thanks

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
