It’s hosed. Spyware, etc.
11:00 AM: I’m booting into Safe Mode to see if I can stop some stuff from starting up when we boot up, again. This is going to need a serious cleaner (but more likely a format and restore.)
My Windows skills aren’t great, since I’ve been using a Mac for about 5 years, now.
11:15 AM: Found something called MalwareBytes’ and installed it. Started it and let it update. When I started a scan, it crapped out and died. Not a good sign.
11:20 AM: Back into Safe Mode, uninstalled MWB and reinstalled, started a scan. So far, so good. Definitely need to stay in SM until things start to defog.
11:58 AM: 111 files found infected. Ran the quarentine. Restarting back into Normal Mode.
