Lately, some suspicious behaviour has led me to believe that my computer may have been infected with something, and I would be very grateful if someone could please help me out! Here are the symptoms:
1) From time to time, my Internet Explorer will spontaneously open up to "wartune.r2games.com" which is a website that I have not even heard of, let alone visited. I never use Internet Explorer, either; I always use Chrome or, rarely, Firefox.
2) I am not sure if it is related, but I am no longer able to open my Start menu either by clicking the task bar button or the Windows Logo key on my keyboard.
3) Again, not sure if it is related, but I am unable to adjust my screen brightness settings on my laptop, either by using the slider in the Power Options menu, or the function keys on my keyboard. As well, left-clicking on several features of the bottom task bar such as: the Volume Control icon, the Battery Icon, and the "Search the web and Windows" bar, no longer works. However, right-clicking still elicits a response.
I am currently running Windows 10, on an Acer Aspire V5.
- Scanned with MalwareBytes, Super AntiSpyware, Avast!, and AVG - all came back with no results.
Please let me know which other details I can provide for you/steps you would like me to take. Thanks in advance for the help! I look forward to hearing from you!
