When I log onto my windows 8, my malware bytes will have certain features turned off. My network adapter has been randomly routing me to a a random server under the IPv6 and the other day I got the weird message from Google saying my computer has been sending random information meaning I assume I'm part of a bot net. I ran spybot search and Destroy and it came up with random rootlits which im not actually sure if they are rootlits or not. I deleted one and now my malware bytes actually picks up the other files as rootkits.
