Malwarebytes finds/fixes affected file but problem persists

Recommended Posts


My cable company has informed me I have spam being genereated from my IP address. I ran Malwarebytes and it finds a Rootkit.Agent. So I set it to delete and reboot but when I run it again, it still finds it. I've run RootRepeal twice following directions from a similar post and it ran for over 20 hours both times. Any other suggestions? Thnx so much in advance. Here is the Malwarebytes log:
