Spybot S&D found all kinds of trojans, etc. But after running it and eliminating those that I was certain were bad, IE7 showed IT was using up 98-99% of my CPU. I did msconfig, and removed Spybot S&D from the start menu, and several others from the "services" table, and IE7 seems to be working now, but I'm wondering if when I reboot (haven't yet) I might have issues with this.
Also, I noticed in the start menu an executable file labeled "36110103225105870656.exe" with no information as to where or whom it came from. I searched for this on the net and found nothing, but I did find several listings for "36110103225.exe", indicating it was malware, and part of malware group Rootkit Haxdoor.
My questions are:
1) Is the file I have also a Rootkit Haxdoor malware?
2) Am I likely to have issues when restarting my computer by turning off Spybot S&D and others?
3) How do I make sure my hard drive is REALLY clean? On the cheap or free, preferably?
Thanks very much. I'm looking forward to your answers.
