I also wanted to add that I find it disturbing that every tech question that comes up here is answered with "malware bytes" the programs good, but not that good.

When the symptoms of cancer show doctors shouldn't prescribe asprin. There are very few viruses that do what the op has described, and none of them can be resolved with malware bytes, never mind the fact that every single person that owns a computer knows what malware bytes is, probably because its so over suggested.
Out of curiosity what would you have suggested the op do after malware bytes shuts down midscan and freeze's the comp, which is most likely what the op is going through right now ?
*also, malware bytes is not the starting point, asking the client what anti virus they are using now is, from there you get the client to utilize their existing software, and if they don't have an anti virus installed you would use an online scanner, as program downloads such as malware bytes can trigger vampire programming in the new breed of virus, hence the midscan computer freeze. and the reason I find its immediate suggestion of download disturbing.
It would seem that telling someone to download programs is making the assumption that they don't have one installed, and I gave the op options as well as a proper symptom list that will aid in the diagnosis, and yes if it is CW you reformat if it can't be resolved by the link I gave there is no two ways about it.edit on 29-11-2011 by DrunkNinja because: (no reason given)
