Windows 7: Is someone sharing Windows 7 with me?

notaclue9 sez:
"Meanwhile, there has been activity I didn't allow on my third credit card in the last two months. I am about to give up, as dealing with this and the fallout from it has taken immense amounts of my time and made me really paranoid. I am ready to drop-kick the HP over my back fence & get a Mac."

That was a week ago, and this has been going on, what - 3 weeks?
Has anybody warned you off running a compromised PC?
Has anybody mentioned that a format, and reinstalling Windows and all of your applications would take much less time than you've spent chasing shadows?
Tell me you're enjoying this, because that's the only reason I can think of for this nonsense.

@Victor S

Thank you for your comments.

This User, nottaclue9, has the option to do whatever she wishes with the computer she owns.

If she chooses to format and install, or to restore the computer to factory defaults, she can receive excellent help from the Installation and Setup forum: Installation & Setup - Windows 7 Help Forums

If she wishes to continue here, we will gladly work with her, and know when to quit.

There is no nonsense in this forum. Each person's concerns are taken seriously, and every effort to help is provided.

Have a great day.

I apologize for cyber-mouthing-off. I guess I just get so frustrated by my own lack of knowledge and inability to do the things necessary for completing this task that I forget my manners. I am truly sorry. I am truly grateful to cottonball & Vista King for sticking with me, even with all of the interruptions in the proceedings and my utter "no cluedness." I feel that if I were in any danger of blowing out my computer, I would be apprised of the situation and told to shut it down.

OK, then. Where were we?

I'll retrieve the mbar file the only way I know how & see if I can at least let you see it.

I couldn't begin the download from the Malware Byte Rootkit site saved to my desktop. So I went back to the acutal site, and as before, when I tried to download, the mbar file showed up while Windows was doing its security scan. I tried copy/paste, but "paste" was grayed out in the drop-down menu. So, I'm typing what I saw in the file. Everything in it is dated 3/22/13 except the "Read Me," which is dated 4/2/13. Here's what's in it:

Data
image formats
Languages
Plug-Ins
License.rtf
mbam.dll
mbar.exe
msvcp100.dll
mscvr100.dll
QtCore4.dll
QtGui4.dll
Read Me

Double click the mbar icon. To the right, under the Type heading, it should say: Application

Double-click to see image:

Ah, the elusive "extract" button is at last found. When I double-clicked on the mbar file (it's a file folder, not an actual icon), and opened "Application," there was the "extract" button. I clicked on it, and it said it was extracting 28 items. But I never got to see what they were. After the extract window closed, I was sent back to the page with the mbar file icon. I thought maybe the list of extracted things would be there. Nope. A new window popped up -- Malware Bytes Rootkit Utility. It asked if I wanted to run the program, but I wasn't sure I should make a decision like that without asking what it does first.

When you double-click the mbar icon (highlighted on the left) is this what you see?
Does the MBAR prompt on the right show up?

That's psychic or something, cottonball. That's exactly what I see.

What do I do next?

On Cottonball's image on the right . Click on the Next button. Let it Update . Once its done updating click on the Next button . Make sure there are 3 checks under Scan Targets then click Next . Once its done scanning and it locates items you could either click on the Cleanup button or click on the Exit button and upload the logs it creates inside the folder you ran MBAR.exe from and upload them

That's almost psychic, cottonball. I am impressed Yes, that's exactly what I see. Thank you for not making me figure out a screenshot tonight. I'm getting better at it, but my learning curve is challenged.

What should I do next?
