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?
