thanks in advance for your help.
This is my first time on Bleeping. I have used a different anti-malware site some years ago, but I forget the name.
About a month ago I had trouble getting some apps to function. Suspecting a virus, I ran MWBytes which turned up one of the Rootkit.necurs family of butthurt.
So I looked it up and found out what a pain it is and how it can defeat a lot of anti malware apps.
Being busy at the time I just shut the laptop down and fired up the older desktop so as to continue working.
Now I have more time and inclination, I restarted the LT and wish to move on and clean it. However, so far, nothing seems to be wrong. (Not that I've done much yet.)
Unfortunately since I haven't had a virus in years so I didn't follow good protocols like writng down the actual file MWB found - sorry.
Below is the closest I found to anyone with a similar issue.

So I guess the first step is to determine the real state of this machine.
Thank you for your assistance.
