Help C drive in my pictures - Virus?
by jlbazr - 4/7/12 7:06 AM
Recently I have been noticing my laptop moving slowly (windows 7). Searching through some of my Other Users, I find that the C Drive seems to be copying itself (and additional copies of my pictures, etc) into the My Pictures folder. I do not see this additional C drive copy in my account as the administrator, just 1 other users account.
Last night I ran a Malwarebytes scan in safe mode (administrator's account) and removed two viruses that I could not see in normal mode.
But to know if the removal was successful, I would need to delete the 'copied' C: drive (the regular C: drive location still exists). If the C:Drive returns to My Pictures in the next day or so I will know the removal did not work.
Has anyone seen this or fixed this issue? How?
And would there be any harm removing this copy of C drive (since I assume this is a copy). I feel this will be the only way to know if and why this backup/copy seems to be happening.
Help and thanks!!!
