Several weeks ago after my computer went through this process here on this site I was given a list of programs that I could delete after getting my problem taken care of. I didn't remove the programs then, and now I cannot remove malware bytes at all.
Another thing I noticed is I get a small red icon in my system try telling me that my computer is not set up for automatic updates and that I need to change that. When I go to the section to change it, it says I am already setup for automatic updates. Also my AVG softawe connection for updates is being blocked somehow and I am unable to get the most recent updates and virus definitions.
Another thing I noticed is that my keyboard sometimes misses letters as I type and it picks back up and types the next few letters. I constantly get pop-ups telling me that my computer may be infected with a virus. The warnings do not identify a company, but it is not AVG.
In the past I believe my computer had a Smitfraud virus and I think it still might. But I cannot run logs and post them because I can't come to this site with my machine.
Do I need to buy another internal HD and just reinstall my operating system on it? Or is my machine likely infected on a level that a simple change of HD would not work (ie, the BIOS)? Can I reformat my HD and rid myself of this issue? All assistance or is truly appreciated and I will post any logs necessary if someone can help me get my machine back to the point where I am allowed to visit this site from my computer.
