windows 7 professional 64 bit Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601


only thing of note is this file (found by ESET online, post #19, 3 days ago) seems to be gone from laptop without anything I did.

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Adobe\Shockwave 12\gt.exe

I searched entire computer for it (including hidden files) and no results found.

Not sure what happened to it. Maybe ESET did remove it? or was removed when uninstalling System Mechanic? or updating version of Adobe Shockwave?

I am running ESET online again. I'll see if it comes up with anything and if so try to remove. I'll post my findings.

Also, I bought subscription for Malwarebytes Premium.
