Today, I got one of those drive cleaner advertisements. I searched drive cleaner in google and found out that they're just trying to get me to purchase their program. I searched my computer for any files marked drive cleaner and I found 3 and deleted them. They were cookie files, I think. Have I removed this thing from my computer or is there still the possibility that it is still in there? I don't even know wether I was really infected or not.

I'm not really good w/ computers. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
