Got a note from my provider (fatcow.com). “When we conducted a routine scan for your account ‘XXXXXXXX’, we found the malicious or infected files. We have uploaded a file named ‘list.txt’ within the stats directory of your account which contains the full list of files.”
179 to be exact. Most were old original files from my earlier WordPress installation, old dates. Not sure why the scan took until now to pick them up. Others were newer files but they all had the same “type” filename. So when you go deleting files like “function.php” and other types in WordPress etc., you tend to have a non-working site after it was all “said and done”.
Going to change the theme when I decide which one.
