I recently picked up malicious software on my pc that prevented me from logging in with my regular limited user. I tried to delete files that I found on my pc that did not belong there. I did find files created by some one else identified as "json".
does your site offer users any kind of in deapth registry scan to find an eliminate any
deep buried malicious code that a superficial scan will not? Symtoms login when certain keys pressed, brings up other on screen prgms while logon screen still present, reg user account locked out, Log in Admin possible if name put in last after passcode entered. Must be TSR prgm. I did find malcious word file that I could not easily delete at the root of HDD.
