I believe there are too many things wrong, thus share you thoughts. It is time for a complete reinstall of the system.

I started anew. With a fresh Windows 7 SP1 install on my secondary hard drive, and will use the OS drive that's identical as the slave HD.

 

I'm thinking about buying SSDs at some point and putting Windows 10 on one of them.

 

You can go ahead and close the topic. I made the right choice coming here when I was infected. You were very helpful and we even got rid of the nasty rootkit in my system initially. I will come back and post a new topic if I ever have this kind of problem again. Thank you so much. :)

Congratulations. I feel great for you.

 

 

Always keep your antivirus active and updated. Keep away from torrents and keygens.

 

Many peer-to-peer networks are under constant attack by people with a variety of motives.

Examples include:

  • poisoning attacks (e.g. providing files whose contents are different than the description)
  • denial of service attacks (attacks that may make the network run very slowly or break completely)
  • defection attacks (users or software that make use of the network without contributing resources to it)
  • insertion of viruses to carried data (e.g. downloaded or carried files may be infected with viruses or other malware)
  • malware in the peer-to-peer network software itself (e.g. distributed software may contain spyware)
  • filtering (network operators may attempt to prevent peer-to-peer network data from being carried)
  • identity attacks (e.g. tracking down the users of the network and harassing or legally attacking them)
  • spamming (e.g. sending unsolicited information across the network- not necessarily as a denial of service attack)

Best regards. :)
