I had a Ramnit.A infection a few weeks ago and after detecting the infection with Malwarebytes, I decided to do an HP Factory reset, opting to reformat the drive and abstaining from backing up anything in the infected hard drive. I did move over a few document like tax returns and pictures that I scanned on virustotal.com first to check for infection but those files were completely clean. Now when I run malwarebytes, it’s not picking up any Ramnit.A infections, but from time to time there are periods of freezing and sometimes when I’m using chrome, there will be a random click and my browser will be minimized. Another peculiarity that occurs regularly is that in the 30 seconds after login, I will hear a clicking sound not triggered by any physical mouseclicks. Is my paranoia unfounded? Did the Ramnit.A survive the reformatting or did it infect the recovery files? What can I do to make sure that I’m not being remotely observed/keylogged?
