I honestly am not sure where to post this problem.  I wrote about it before a couple of months ago, but was told to go to the Virus Spyware & Malware forum.  Problem is I refuse to run any scans as was told I would need to do before getting any answers on my problem.  I am not trying to be uncooperative, but I have run COUNTLESS scans on my own and am 100% CONVINCED I have been hacked. So I put it here in Windows 10, because that is what I am running. Since I don't wish to run any scans, will you please allow my post here and allow replies, or if not, reply and tell me where the topic should be moved to so I  can get replies based on what I am telling you here.  I thought Networking would be appropriate as hacking is related to a penetration into your network. 

Now for my problem:

In this post, I am going to concentrate on one issue I have suspected was associated with a hacker from the beginning. And more so as time has gone by. It involves my command prompt box. Ever since all this suspicious behavior started on my machine, my command prompt box would come up at random times for about one second, no longer. Sometimes there is writing in the box, sometimes not. Because it goes by so fast have been unable to do a print screen. However, tonight I got lucky. I FINALLY got the screen printed and transferred it to my Paint. The box comes up daily, usually two or three times, as I said at very random times as I have kept records. Unfortunately, on the one I finally caught tonight, there was nothing in the box, but there was some writing across the border on the top. I am going to print here all it said, as I have NO IDEA what it means or may mean. I am hoping someone here may be able to look at this and give me some ideas about it or any information would help. Here is what it said: Select C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe
If you know what that means or even part of it, or have some ideas or theories I would really like to hear them, as I cannot make heads or tails of any of it. It certainly looks "wrong".I do not activate the command prompt box EVER, it just comes up. I have read many things in the search engines that can possibly account for the command prompt box coming up, but have found nothing that relates to my situation. I have seen a few say they were worried it might indicate hacker or malicious activity, like maybe trying to "connect" and other various theories. Understand I NEVER had anything like this happen until all my "problems" began about 2 months ago. Thank you for any and all help.(Please don't ask me to run any scans because I have already done all that and there is no further need. I am POSITIVE a hacker is on my network, I do not need any more scans to convince me of that. I just want some help with this problem I am describing, PLEASE)

I will not ask you to run any antivirus programs but i will need you to run few programs that may help us resolve your issue.

Scan with Autoruns

Please download Autoruns by Sysinternals and save the file to your desktop.
  • Right-click on the AutoRuns.exe icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • It is important that you do not use your machine while the tool is running.
  • Wait patiently until the tool finishes its scanning. You will be notified with the Ready message in the lower left corner upon completion.
  • Go to File menu and select Save.
  • Make sure that the Save as type option is set to AutoRuns Data (*.arn) and the place to save will be your desktop. Name it somehow that you'll be able to identify it.
Please attach the file to your next post.
To attach it:
  • After typing in your message, click More reply options instead of Post.
  • below the post preview and the post editor, you should be able to see Attach files option - please click Choose file.
  • in the pop-up window navigate to the desktop. Choose the one previously mentioned and attach it.
If the file will be to big to attach it (it may happen), then please host it on a Dropbox account or a site like mediafire.com, providing me the link to the uploaded file.
