Malware infested in my computer?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Every now and then, my computer decides to alt tab on its own and cycles through each application running. Oddly enough, it always happens when some mcaffee os client that my school requires all computers to have is running idle in my applications list. But what set me off the edge was when my computer went on google by itself and typed one of my passwords into the search bar yesterday. I ran various antivirus programs and i did manage to find some nasty things :0 dormant in my system, but i'm not sure what the root of my problems came from or if its still there.

I have a few other av programs that i installed a while back. Malwarebytes and avast are some of them. I cant duplicate the issue since it happens on a whim. Last time my computer started to alt tab on its own was more than a month ago.

Get Linux and tell your school to shove it? That's what I do. It's really amusing when my netbook does school work as fast as a mac air or more expensive computer.

I think it may be some kind of malicious executable that runs in my task manager. My case fans were extremely loud the last time the issue occurred, and it seemed to hog the cpu resources. Not sure if i can see if it will alleviate my problem since i cant duplicate the issue on command. It happens erratically.

If you go the route of disabling McAfee, pick up MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials)

Has been good with me for the past few months, very quiet, but has detected few suspicious things that came in via flash drive.
