    Hello! This is my first time on this forum.

    First, a little background information about my computer:
    My problem lies in an event that occurred a couple of hours ago.
    1.) I inserted my roommates flash-drive.
    2.) Windows Defender immediately detected the following:
    3.) I pressed deny in Windows Defender, and under 'Status' it says 'Succeeded.'
    4.) I found these events odd so I opened up Windows Task Manager.
    5.) I found 'Sunny.exe' and 'King.exe' running. (Sunny.exe is my friend's computer's administrator username while King.exe is my computer's administrator username)
    6.) I have not tried to end the processes as I fear that might trigger another process.
    7.) I opened up my expired McAfee and found that outbound access was blocked regarding Sunny.exe, but there was no mention of King.exe.
    8.) I came here for help!

    Info on King.exe:
    What is odd is that I can not find King.exe in the file location specified. (I used Windows Search feature to find it.)

    I cannot find Sunny.exe on my computer, but it is running on my computer.

    Here's my HijackThis v2.0.2 log:
    Thanks in advance for putting effort into reading all of this!

    Also note I have not restarted my computer after initial infection.

    Also note I have the following anti-spyware/anti-virus software installed:

    Some news: I shutdown my computer last night and started it this morning. King.exe is still there but Sunny.exe is nowhere to be found. Also: I can't end the process. Whenever I try, Windows Task Manager freezes and closes.

    Solved using the following procedure:
    1.) Downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Software (Free).
    2.) Ran a full system scan.
    3.) The scan found, quarantined, and deleted the following:
    4.) After scanning, I restarted the computer and checked for King.exe in Windows Task Manager. It was not found. I also found that King.exe was removed from my computer.
    5.) Success!
