I discovered a "windows nt" on my Windows 10 Program Files(x86) folder. Empty "temp" folder in c: folder.  "internet explorer" floder in Program Files folder. Any clues as to what's the issue? Please let me know? Thanks.

Hi, well the temp folder is empty, so no need to do anything there. The others "internet explorer" and "windows nt" are normal, they are part of the win 10 OS, why does this concern you? Are you having problems with your computer?

Please see attachment. 

Again, I am not able to pinpoint the issue as I am not a malware/rootkit guru. 

I was referred here from a different forum (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/664867/offline-and-online-rookitmalware-in-windows-10/?view=getnewpost) and I was able to remove something and only temporarily from Windows OS. The issues continue to persist. 

 

***I have already tried all popular anti-virus/anti-malware applications (to name a few: Avira, Malwarebytes, AVG, AdwCleaner, RogueKiller, esetonline) and none detected anything.***

 

Behaviors I have noticed is changes in router settings even after resetting the gateway, removing email accounts that were previously compromised, clean installing ( downloaded iso from microsoft official website and burned it to dvd), 2-4 dllhost.exe processes disappear in task manager when mouse specifically moves over the items and when there are no applications running. On this website as I am typing my keyboard caps lock was off and the words started to type in all caps. When I was typing in Google Docs - characters were being "overlapped" when typing. Just yesterday, I was typing in the other forum and I was not able to type with spaces. I can be absolutely certain that my keyboard is working fine when offline using microsoft office suite for example.

 

Please let me know as I would like closure to this continuous years of issue. I want to know if my computer is compromised and not simply a temporary issue?
