You're welcome. I try to use the best tool for the job to be done. (Have you tried Puppy? I use it a lot when a live boot suits the task. Sometimes I use Knopix.)

Have you tried Norton Power Eraser?

No I didn't know of any of those tools. I downloaded both Norton files. I'll give the Power Eraser a go and see what it can find.
I downloaded a copy of Puppy Linux too. I guess I'm out of touch with the latest.

I just ran Power Eraser and it found one threat.

I removed it and ran it again and it found nothing. The first time it gave me the option of scanning that file, or at the top was a button that said Scan all files. I only clicked the one beside the found file. I didn't get any options on the second run. I wish I had clicked the All files button.
But anyway, maybe this was the root of my problems, Was this thing likely to be creating the random mystery bugs I kept finding this past week?

Could be but I recommend re-running your program (check all files) at least twice more with a cold boot (power down) between each.

To make sure run the NRT LiveCD.

I also ran ESET online scanner and got a clean report.

I'm calling it solved. Sorry I took so long to get back with that

The system seems clean but for a glitch Saturday morning. This problem is being discussed in a new thread.
