I would love help as soon as possible as I am unsure of whether or not this problem is severe.


OS: Windows 8.1 Pro (WMC) x64



Symptoms: Noticed some very minor changes over time in the last few hours. Biggest change was that all hidden files were now hidden (before I had the setting to show hidden files). I can not enable "view hidden files", but can access them by typing it into the explorer bar.


After noticing a major lag when trying to open the Control Panel (did not open and took several attempts, explorer.exe kept on stalling and had to force restart), I looked through the files on my computer and went to C:\Users\[ME]\AppData\Local and found this text file: (scroll to the bottom for recent events):


BTServer.log http://pastebin.com/0wxHnYAH


After opening and viewing it, I became very cautious and disabled all drivers related to Bluetooth services and closed any related programs via Task Manager. (around 4:05pm)


I ran MBAM (Threat Scan) and still currently running BitDefender scan (Full system). MBAM found absolutely nothing, while BD is still scanning. I still do not have access to view hidden files. Control Panel is now able to open along with any other folder.


I'm not sure what caused this and I honestly do not know where to start. I wish I could be more detailed but this is all I've got at the moment, and if anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it!




EDIT: WordPad.exe keeps on crashing about 5-10 seconds after opening it; just noticed this now when trying to open it.


EDIT2: BitDefender (Free Edition...) logs show that it found two things yesterday:


File Name  |  Infection  |  Action
C:\Users\TayyabJ\AppData\Local\Temp\dbOAcCbO.exe.part  |  Gen:Variant.Symmi.41047  |  Deleted
C:\Users\TayyabJ\AppData\Local\Temp\UmEyhmj0.exe.part   |  Gen:Variant.Symmi.41047  |  Deleted
