My name is Devon.  Yesterday, when I started up my computer, a lot of error messages were coming up from various programs being unable to start.  I restarted my system with a bit of suspicion, and all seemed well until the Chromium browser was installed without my doing anything.  At this point, I did a quick scan with ESET NOD32 Antivirus4, which turned up nothing.  However, a few minutes later, the live protection picked up on two things.  I didn't think to take note of them at the time, but one was a variant of some malware being detected in a change of the cmd.exe in C:\Windows\SysWOW64.  I made an ESET SysRescue disc, and launched into the live cd, and did a deep scan from there, which turned up nothing.  I then went into Safe Mode and looked for any suspicious files.  I found and deleted Chromium from my user's AppData\Local, as well as ByteFence antimalware from Program Files (I had not ever heard of ByteFence, let alone installed it.).  I am about to run scans and stuff with RogueKiller, Hitman Pro, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes, and HerdProtect.  I will attach those logs when I get them.  In the meantime, is there anything anyone might be able to point me towards that could help?  I'm going to start the scans and go bathe my dogs, so it will be about an hour before I'm back on the forums, and then probably a few more until I have any of the scan logs.  Any help is much appreciated.
