I was quite annoyed that youtube had put a block on me watching many music videos, saying not available in my country. So i did a search on youtube on ways to fix this. I was recommended to go to http://unblockyoutubeproxy.net and to use this website. I used it once and since this time i've noticed that it changed the icon of my facebook link in my favourites. I noticed that it is now a little clip art yellow face that is sort of has an evil laugh. This same icon is used on the website http://unblockyoutubeproxy.net, and so i'm guessing it is to do with this. Can anyone tell me if i need to worry? Do i now have a virus or malware or a keylogger etc. I ran spy doctor and also avast but nothing was found except some cookies. Thanks for reading this and any help would be great.

Anytime that you use questionable software to defeat copyright and/or security measures, you run the risk of downloading malicious items
If you downloaded anything from that site, uninstall it and see it it returns to normal
