I had a Twitter hack and am worried about what else they have hacked. If, as I think, the hacking may have come from a link on Twitter I am worried about what else they have accessed. In the meantime I ran a MWB scan which found the following:

Please don't think that I am trying to circumvent forum etiquette or anything by posting multiple threads, I am just absolutely desperate for help. If needs be, kill this topic: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/644948/malwarebytes-found-potentially-unwanted-modification-what-else-do-need-to-do/#entry4224715
The irony is that I was about to buy a new laptop as I think this one is on its way out anyway because the screen keeps going off. But before I do and connect any new machine to the internet I would like to make sure this one is thoroughly clean (and safe from hackers) so that any problems with this are not transmitted to any new machine I buy. I do a lot of financial stuff online - including grocery orders for my housebound Nan (I can't drive so internet shopping is a Godsend) and to not be able to do this would be a massive spanner in the works.
Thanks for reading.
