Windows 7: .exe programs appearing, antivirus & disk defrag unresponsive

02 Mar 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
.exe programs appearing, antivirus & disk defrag unresponsive


I think I may have a worm in my hard drive as .exe programs keep appearing in my drive - zozoz/jejej/mimim/roror etc. I am also unable to successfully download any scan software for McAfee. Originally had norton 360 and it became unresponsive - not opening. Disk Defrag is also refusing to run.

What should I do? wipe my hard drive and re-install the operating system? Windows 7 64 bit (2009) is what I am currently running.

Taskbar and programs go unresponsive!
Hey Everyone, So a few days ago randomly my computer sort of froze and I was on teamspeak at the time. After that, on teamspeak I was continuously transmitting (I use a push to talk button on my mouse which totally cancelled out). So I restarted my computer thinking it was just a bug. Same...

Windows Disk Defrag Doesn't Defrag
Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.
