I contracted what I believed was the fake Windows Security Center Malware.
I ran Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and CCleaner with their updated versions. This *seemed* to have gotten rid of it.
Yet, I still have the Windows Security Center thing pop up telling me that I have no "Malware Protection". Clearly it's still on my computer....yet it is not being picked up on by any of the anti-tools that I have. I have full internet access and have uninstalled all the anti-tools and reinstalled and run them separately. I have tried the removal process as outlined in a youtube video / bleeping computer.com, but I didn't have many of the files in my System folder that they were instructing me to do something with.
Still, I beleive I have the malware is on my comp.
Additionally, I have Fibre Optic internet with 15-19 MBPS DL. In real life, from my computer only, I am seeing .86 MBPS - 12.38 MBPS DL. My ISP told me that the random spikes in DL and UL activity (even when there are no UL's or DL's in progress) are indicative of Malware or Spyware and not that of a virus).
I'd really like to get rid of this thing.....advice?
