Greetings to all, I am a novice, but learning. the internet has given me the opportunity to learn what I never has a chance to learn. I am seeking some assistance from some knowledgeable people. I have Windows 7 --64 bit. I believe that I have a malware infection. I did have, and maybe still do, the Trovi application. I sometimes get a window that is whitter on top the window I was viewing. sometimes when I go to control panel, then Windows 7 _OS C, then Properties, sometimes I get rediredted to View Basic information about this computer. Why is this internet location reccomending Malaware Anti--Malaware over other programs ? Such as Trend--Micro, Junk Removal Tool. Would these programs alter Windows 7 WscvsFile ?  What other programs, that would be woth the time and effort, could be used, besides Malaware Anti--Malaware, to scan in the safe mode ?   Why is it that the free version did not remove the malaware ? Why is the paid version that much better ? What is the consesus regarding Super Anti Spyware (http://www.superantispyware.com) ? When I copy a file to .pdf I see the Mozilla Firefox logo where I would see the .pdf logo. Why is that ?  What is one to do, or not do, with these files, %CommonAppData%\<random characters and numbers> %LocalAppData%\<random characters and numbers>%LocalAppData%\<random>.exe
%Temp%\<random characters and numbers>%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Templates\<random characters and numbers>
