Thank you in advance for your help. I just purchased a new Windows 10 laptop (64-bit OS, x64-based processor). Four days ago I noticed that my android phone had turned bluetooth on by itself (I always keep it off) and paired to an unknown device called "Misc". The login credentials to my home wifi were saved in my phone so I immediately checked my computer to run a virus scan and noticed that bluetooth was enabled on my laptop, scanning for devices to pair with, and it listed a device called "Unknown." I made hidden files/folders visible and saw what looked like a Remote Desktop connection so I went to the Remote Settings and the box was checked to allow Remote Desktop Connection. I am positive that prior to this incident, bluetooth and Remote Desktop were disabled.
The computer booted slowly so I reinstalled Windows 10 using the built in refresh/reset option. I ran Malwarebytes and ESET - both came up clean. But the computer kept enabling Remote Desktop Connection and booted slowly so I ran TDSSKiller which quarantined 1 object:
c:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\A4\AdaptiveSleepService.exe
AdaptiveSleepService ( UnsignedFile.Multi.Generic )
KLMD registered as C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\43299166.sys
Now the computer screen occasionally blinks and things occasionally flash on the screen (with the appearance of a command prompt that runs for a millisecond), and remote desktop keeps re-enabling itself.
I hope you can help. Thanks!
