Windows 7: Folders changing into .scr & more problems

Folders changing into .scr & more problems

I'll try to explain as much as possible. I've used Microsoft Safety Scanner as some sites suggested. It detects 4 viruses in my computer. 2 of them are completely removed. Except 2, which is
TrojanSpy.WIn32 Banker (Partially removed)
and another one, I forgot what its name, but it shows partially removed, manual removal required.
I clicked the thingy and hopefully get the solution to manually remove, but it ended up showing me that the way to remove is using Microsoft Safety Scanner. Any ways to fix these both things?
EDIT: Nope, I don't want tweakbit (that software I saw on this site)

Do you have an anti virus program installed?

Get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free and set it to scan rootkits too (Settings - Detection). Scan with it and let us know how it goes.

Alright. Let me leave it there and I'll let you know the result later.
EDIT: The whole thing is f**ked up after the reboot for the Malwarebytes thing. My Local Disk C is now infected, too. My stuffs inside the Local Disk C goes into a folder called "Avenger" and they all changed into .scr too. And the problem is not resolved.

Yes. And I did some search and the Avenger folder is actually an Anti-Malware thing. So I guess it's fine. And I discovered the hack actually hides all the actual folder and create a .scr thing and get us confused. Can I delete the .scr file instead of downloading more stuffs? Since I already revealed the hidden files.
The Malwarebytes didn't actually delete those .scr files though.

I'm no expert on security but it looks to me as if you are infected with the scr Trojan. The fact that you have not had an A/V installed is a worry. Do you use a Torrent for downloading as this is one of the many ways you can get infected even if you have an A/V installed? If yes then I think you would be well advised to wait for one of the security experts here to look at this for you!

Yes it's a trojan. So I can't actually do anything unless some experts notice this thread? And yeah I use torrent a lot. I usually find those with a lot seeders/rating to download but I guess it's still causing problems.

Didn't MBAM find the Trojans? I will ask this thread to be moved to security section, where it will get noticed.

It did find them, but the .scr files are still there even after MBAM prompted me to reboot after the removal process is completed (Yes I rebooted).
