Windows 7: Think I got a virus - fake user?

Tekno,
If WDO doesn't catch it, the MalwareBytes certainly won't.

MalwareBytes is not an offlline anti-malware program, thus can not catch several pieces of malware.

WDO is the most up-to-date anti-malware solution available.

As a first cut, malwarebytes is ok and if the problem persists then one can run WDO. But not the other way around.
