I looked at the event logs and there is hundreds of errors over the past hour and day. Most of them I could not interpret but a few that struck me as odd is one that said "An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for an account." as well as numerous notifications of event logging being turned off as well remote access to enable my webcam and mic and turn off notification of this happening. Numerous notifications of different files have been given access to change event logs and on one or two occasions while looking at a log the screen would pop up an error along the lines of "log not found" and I could no longer access what I was reading. I have run malware bytes and it has found nothing.I have run hijack this logs but do not really know how to interpret them and am currently making rogue killer logs under suggestion on another forum of what to do before posting. I tried a system restore to an earlier date but it has had no effect.


I have also started following this instructions on what to do to get logs before posting on their forums 


A little about my system:

Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-4000M CPU @ 2.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 4

Graphics Card: Intel® HD Graphics 4600, -2016 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 705575 MB, Free - 177696 MB;

I use this system for work so I hope to get it secured as soon as possible. Thanks to any who look over this!

Hi joe, Have you completed those scans:
