Finding Malware On My Former Classmate MT’s Computer And Living In A Walmart / School / House

All that I can remember of my dream from last night is that it took place during the day and I seemed to be in the parking lot of the Walmart in the city of D inside the automobile of my former classmate MT, he was inside the automobile as well in the driver’s seat while I was in the front passenger’s seat, and he was letting me use his computer which somehow was able to use the internet in this parking lot.

He went inside Walmart to shop while I stayed outside inside his automobile using his computer to use the internet, at some point I noticed that his computer was running slow/choppy/strange, and I saw that he had Malwarebytes Anti-malware installed but he had not run/did a malware scan with it in a long time; and so I updated it, and I did a malware scan and it found some malware in seconds so I waited for the scan to finish.

I waited for my former classmate MT to get back so that I could tell him this, recommend that he let me also install Hitman Pro to automatically do a quick malware scan every time that his computer starts up, talk with him about what anti-virus/anti-malware program he was using if any, and explain/show him my recommendations on protecting his computer.

At some point my former classmate MT returned to his automobile and I started talking with him about all of this and he let me install Hitman Pro and start a scan with it, I gave him the computer, and so I did not get to see if either scan finished or not; and I remember telling him that I expected him to take better care of his computer because he knew more about computers than me when we were younger and he has had computers for much longer than me and he even has a computer related college degree.

He agreed with me and he admitted that he has/had become lazy when it comes to protecting his computer and things like that, but he would try to get himself to follow some of my simple advice; and the next thing that I remember is being inside what looked like Walmart combined with a school combined with a house where I lived with most of my family.

The school part of the building was in the grocery/food section if you turned down a small hall that looked like it might lead to the bathrooms, if you went further down this hall there was another hall that connected to some of the house areas where I lived with most of my family, and so our house areas were somewhat connected with both the Walmart and school and some of our house areas were possibly in the school.

Our house area and probably the school area had one or more doors on the side of the building that led to a field/playground similar to the one a D Junior High School, I remember walking outside because it was nice and away from the crowds of people in the store, and I explored parts of all three areas; and I even saw and talked with most of my family.

When I had entered the store area to reach our house area earlier I remember possibly seeing the comedian Margaret Cho, and as I explored some of the school and house areas I wondered how many people would accidentally walk from the store area through these areas; and I wondered how many students would accidentally walk into our house area.

All of these areas were connected and the school and house areas had various halls so anyone could walk around without any thing to stop them except for mostly unlocked doors, surprisingly it seemed that not many people accidentally entered other areas to my surprise, and at some point I decided to explore the store area even though I did not want to be around the crowds of people really.

I remember seeing my former male classmate ME who I have not seen since we graduated from high school, I greeted him and he asked me how I was doing (which is a question that I hate), and I told him that I was doing okay; and he told me that he meant to say how was my life going and that he wanted details, and I told him that things were okay as in some parts of my life were going good and other parts bad and other parts in-between.

I started to talk about some of those parts as we walked around, I remember my former classmate ME stopping in the bakery section at an open area of nice looking sub sandwiches, and he was interesting in one that had lots of cheese and liquid (maybe melted cheese or cheese sauce); and I remember being ready to leave after talking mostly about myself, and about the negative parts of my life.

Before leaving I asked him if he had went to D college and if he did the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) and if he joined the Air Force like he had planned back in high school when he got his scholarships for both D college and the Air Force on senior day shortly before our high school graduation, but I woke up as he was still focused on the sandwich which he was touching like he was trying to decide if he should get it or not and how much (which I though was unsanitary for them to have the food open, and for them to allow people to touch on it).

Fixing A Computer | The B Dorm Is Back

Dream 1

I remember part of two dream fragments from last night with the first dream taking place in a fictional version of LC, I think, and I was staying at an unknown fictional location with my family; and a man who worked at a bank in the city brought his computer to me, so that I could fix it for him.

The computer was not booting to Windows and so I started to run a program in DOS-Mode hoping that the computer would eventually be able to boot to Windows, so that I could save his data, instead of just formatting the hard-drive.

The man then left and I told him that I would call him when/if I was able to fix his computer, and later in the dream I got distracted by indoor work that needed to be done where we were staying, and so I forgot about the computer that I was supposed to be fixing.

I remember fixing some semi-broken furniture and I found a few insects hiding in the leg of the furniture, one of which was a roach, and I killed it.

At some point I remembered the computer that I was supposed to be fixing and the program that I ran had worked, and so the computer was able to boot to Windows; but it was an older version of Windows, maybe Windows ME or Windows 98 SE.

I felt that the computer was probably infected with malware and so I wanted to run some anti-malware scans/scanners (like Malwarebytes Antimalware Free, Hitman Pro, Norton Power Eraser, Comodo Cleaning Essentials) before I did anything else, and then I wanted to upgrade the Operating System to Windows XP or higher, if the hardware met the requirements, it appeared to be an older computer & so I was guessing that Windows XP was going to be the newest Windows that the hardware could support.

I decided to call the man to ask his permission to fix the computer any further, but either I woke up or I switched to another dream.

Dream 2

The second dream took place in LC at the M college parking lot by C, and I was walking with a group of college students toward the B dorm, and I was telling them about how I used to live at B until the building was closed permanently by a hurricane years ago back when I was still in college at M.

The building had been left to rot for years after the hurricane, and the students started to joke about how ugly the building was, but I told them that I enjoyed living there back when the building was still open; even though it was the oldest & cheapest dorm, but it was the most durable of the dorms.

We walked to the front of B and a group of people were gathering, it appeared that B was going to be opened again for the first time in years, and then the doors were opened & the inside looked pretty good to my surprise; and an opening ceremony began that featured some famous people outside of the entrance of B as we watched; the professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal was supposed to be there, but he cancelled his appearance, due to a busy schedule or something like that.

A fictional former athlete gave a presentation that was advertising for/promoting Christianity & a church, and his entire presentation had a Christian theme; but I woke up during his presentation.
