I believe something's wrong with my computer. To be more precise, I believe I've got a rootkit. Obviously formatting came first to my mind. And I intend to do it, if I must. But I want to know if I really am infected.
I've, by pure luck, discovered something's xxxxxx with my windows folder. What happened is, I extracted something with winRAR, and I saw the default location was sys32. Which is weird, because I don't extract stuff to there. So I went to check for recent changes in my sys32 folder, and I'll be damned, I found, sys32\config folder, that was changed just recently.
I googled it, and found some articles saying it is an infection. Anyway I read on, and by pure chance find your awesome forum . I go to check again for recent changes, and I find that the virus is xxxxxx with my drivers\etc folder, and some other folders. So I decide to ask you for help.
Well, I don't want to brag, but I do have some moderately advanced knowledge of desktop, so I understand a bit more than many others.
I really hope you help me. But until you respond, I'll keep my passwords away from this computer. Obviously mail and some other basic passwords are gone, but I don't rly care about that. I don't have anything important there.
What should I do?
I got 2 screens, of my sys32 and of config folder. Here are the thumbnails:
What do you need? I believe you need hijackthis logs. But what else?
Cheers, and thanks for the reply!
