Could you guys help me figure out what is going on with my computer?
Hypothesis: probably got a nasty rootkit?
tried scanning a file with malwarebytes and it keeps popping back in 1-2 seconds with no infection. Sounds good right?
-file scanned (1), the root folder
-opened up the root folder, found there were more than 1 items/subfolders
-rescanned the same root folder, scan results came back 15 files scanned
-tried AVG scanner and the results come back within 1 second, when the file size is several gigs.
When I go to site that requires me to login
-I type in my username, hit tab to proceed typing in my password
-page refreshes, and the cursor goes back to the username box and if i'm not paying attention, I would proceed to type in my password at the username box
-happens when I type tab to enter my password in the box, and also if I try to click on the box to type my password
-happens to more than 1 site (facebook, hulu etc)
^this doesn't happen all the time, occassionally to make matters worse
-firefox with adblock plus and noscript
-win 7 64
I've tried wipes (hdd and my thumbdrives) with Dban and fresh reinstalls but the problem presists.
*edit, while trying to download emsisoft emergency kit firefox "unexpectly crashed"
