    After you reboot can you run Malwarebytes again & have it come up clean? What antivirus are you using? Also once you're sure it's been removed change all of your passwords!

    Hi

    If your PC has been compromised in this way it is highly likely that the following details have been logged and may be used in the near future or at a later date in the following way;

    "Keyloggers are extremely dangerous and can be used to steal personal information such as your social security number, credit card number, and passwords to just about everything. This may lead to identity theft or theft in general. Keyloggers are especially dangerous to anyone who uses online banking or online cash sites such as PayPal for a large amount of money." tech-faq

    If you use any of the above methods, contact the appropriate firms and ask to speak with a security adviser to ensure no money have been taken and what you should do going forward to ensure any of the information that may have been taken cannot be used by third parties.

    It may be best to format your drive, re-install windows and use different passwords

    atb (all the best)

    Hi

    Format the drive and delete the partition table and MBR (take the drive back to nothing)

    nb: you will loose all information on your drive

    Best way right is a fresh install but there something you should to do, if you other drivers maybe there is copy from this and it will active if you just open the drive like sometime happen to me, so after new install don't open any drive install the anti malware from CD ok download it from internet on desktop and run for all drive, clean it and will be ok.
